Explore everyday life of local Russians.
We invite you to a really interesting excursion to Russian Dacha. Take advantage of the unique opportunity of the roundtrip ride by the legendary Trans-Siberian Railway and enjoy the real Russian 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.
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.
Explore what Russians grow in their gardens, taste home made Russian meal or cook barbecue together with your guide (vodka, baked potatoes, pickled vegetables tasting). Explore how Russians spend their summer time outside of the cities.
