This is the first house in town and is a wooden building inside a concrete structure. There's nothing much to watch other than the 3 rooms.

We did not go in but our tour guide pointed out this very simple log cabi as Peter's the Great's first 'Palace', quite different from Peterhof and the Winter Palace.

When asking whether it was worth visiting at the ticket office we were only told we could not enter it. But it is definitely worth it. They surrounded the Domik Petra (Peter's Cabin) by another, a protective stone house. And it is the real thing...More
