The exhibition demonstrates the structure of a candy store at the end of the 19th century. Konfektnaya, located in the center of Moscow, on Merzlyakovsky Lane, is a branch of the museums of the Russian Desero Deseroa Deseroa Deseroa Deserorova. These stores were a special place for treats. The “confetti”, and in particular, in the German way, and this word was pronounced, appeared on the tables during the large receptions, packed in intricately decorated boxes and delivered to the ladies as a gift. The patisseries created exclusive desserts and invented new flavors.
The museum’s exhibits are chocolate, pill, toasted, marzipan, as well as fruits, honey, tea, that is, the entire range of candy stores in the 19th century. The atmosphere is complemented by the author’s interior, recreating in detail the image of a typical “confidential” provincial city. The Russian “confectioners” did everything possible to attract visitors: they intricately decorated the windows, the beautifully packaged sweets, devised special methods to sell and advertise the products. All this is counted during the tour. The tour lasts 35 minutes, ending with a tea party and a sweet tasting. There is a cafeteria for guests, where tea is made with herbs, bird cherries and dried fruits and offers desserts made according to ancient recipes. The most traditional Russian dessert is a painted gingerbread.
