Take advantage of the unique opportunity to ride by the legendary Trans-Siberian Railway during a tour, which also includes the Automobile Antiques Museum and visiting Dacha.
With a guide, you will take a suburban train and enjoy an exciting 40-minute ride on the Trans-Siberian Railway, the longest railway in the world, stretching 9288 km. The route from Moscow to the Russian Far East was opened in 1916.
You will enjoy a short trip along the Russian countryside filled with charming country houses, dense forests and a picturesque coastline along the Amursky Bay.
After the train ride, you will be taken to the Automobile Antiques Museum to see a collection of restored Soviet cars that were used from the 1920s to the 1970s. The exhibition features six exhibition halls, over 50 vintage cars, trucks and motorcycles, including vehicles used during the Second World War.
Next, we invite you to explore the everyday life of the local Russians.
It is a really interesting excursion to Russian Dacha. It's located just near the Automobile Antiques Museum (10 mins) so you will have a great opportunity to relax and enjoy the countryside atmosphere.
You will visit a traditional Russian summer house called a dacha. Many Russian families have dachas. A dacha is usually a wooden house consisting of one or two floors without much in the way of modern conveniences. The dacha is a unique phenomenon in the life of anyone who lives in the boundless expanses of the Russian Federation.
At summer's peak, many Russians don't venture far. The reason is dachas, their country houses. August brings the harvest for their small garden plots, but a dacha is much more than just an economic benefit: it embodies a culture dating back to Communist times.
Do you want to discover real Russian life outside big cities? Visit Russian Dacha in a typical Russian dacha village.
