About the tour

"On my tour you will be able to see simple things that helped humanity develop and explore the world. You will be able to see an old chart and a boat because the sea played an extremely important role in the development of mankind. I will also tell you a little bit about an ancient device for counting, about the first locks and a few other simple things." - Tour Guide, Natalia.
