Local life tour to Russian countryside village


Welcome to the private trip to a traditional Russian village! During this local life experience we will see the wooden "dachas", old countryside markets, groceries, wooden churches, private kitchen gardens "ogorody" and we will enjoy a home-made lunch made by a local retired family of my best friend. You will have an opportunity to see how people live, what they usually drink and how they cook Russian "Borsch" soup. You can also try to make Russian pancakes and learn how to drink Russian vodka "za zdorovje". Besides, you will see how Russian "banya" (sauna) works and see what locals usually plant around their summer cottages.
