Russia with the locals
Special arrangements have
been made exclusively for guests on this tour to meet the local people,
not just see them passing by in the street. You will get into several
homes, see what life is like in Russia today, find out how things have
changed in recent times and discover the real soul of the Russian people.
Have lunch in a private home, enjoy tea and cakes in a garden, talk
with the locals, compare your lifestyle with the people you meet. Listen
to their music, have a night out at a fine dining restaurant, you will
even have a picnic in a park.
This journey is designed
for people who have a keen interest in discovering new destinations.
Ten years ago Russia was a very different country and now the people
of Russia are opening up their homes and their hearts to foreign guests.
On this journey you will have an opportunity to visit off the beaten
track areas that are not included on other tours, including being able
to explore rural villages and wander around picturesque farmlands.
We take you behind the
scenes where very few tourists ever go. You will be able to watch an
Icon painter at work in his studio, we also take you to see the production
of Crystal Glass, that has decorated many an aristocrat's palace over
the long history of this fascinating country.
Patchwork quilt making is a folk craft of Russia that has been passed
down through the generations and we will introduce you to one of these
craft artisans. You will also visit a ceramics maker and take a Horse
Drawn Carriage ride through a park.
You will also have a day in a small agricultural village, once the normal
lifestyle of folk in the country but now being rejected by the younger
generation in favour of life in the city.
