“Ban Zawarkin and Son” has been working for 6 years. Unusual because it is both a coffee shop, a museum, and a shop. The museum has a large number of old watches and other exhibits. There are about 40 hours here, including those in the corridor, in the shop and in the cafe. The oldest is 1830, the youngest is 2010. The collection was gathered by the school principal. His grandfather started this business and passed it through the generations. Some things just gave to collectors, some - were bought at auction.
At the end of the 20th century, a colonial store was opened in this house, the owner of which, in fact, Zavarkin, was a famous rich man until 1917. Until the revolution drove him and his family far abroad.
Earlier, the Polish radio office was at this place, then the descendants of Zavarkin came, who told the story and the director decided to recreate it, open a shop of colonial goods, and the watch collection serves as an addition, a peculiar highlight. In the winery, such institutions no longer exist.
One of the most interesting exhibits are watches that go the other way, with the inscription "Sometimes everything goes wrong" and the watch-balancer nymph Dryad. It moves by creating a magnetic field.
Also in the museum there are a few things related to the Freemasons. For example, a watch that simultaneously serves as a key to the factory of a mechanical watch. The atmosphere in the institution creates a barrel organ and gramophone, which include during the tour.
A tour of the museum costs 25 UAH for adult visitors and 15 UAH for children. Order it in advance by phone or online. In the cafe "Ban Zavarkin and Son" guests are treated to exotic teas, cakes and coffee.
