My Dear client from USA, Jan Squires, in the Botik (small boat) of Peter the Great museum in Pereslavl-Zallesky. The Pleshcheyevo Lake near Pereslavl-Zallesky is considered to be the birthplace of the Russian Navy and the small museum keeps the history of the first Russian fleet. In 1688-1693, young Tsar Peter stayed here and built his famous “fun flotilia” on the huge lake for his own amusement, including the so-called Peter’s little boat (1692) called “Fortune” that perfectly preserved and exposed in the museum. About a hundred big and small boats were built and launched together by summer 1694. The funny flotilia became prototype of the Russian fleet.
