Tour Details

Sterligov houseFew things are as fascinating as the Russian provincial setting. The idyllic landscape accentuates the calm but assiduous life of the village. Here the long-established traditions of Russian field-toiling co-exist with bucolic scenery, and the warmth of the hearth is made even more enigmatic by the fresh local 100% green produce. It is this mixture of agrarian, family and house-building traditions that has become the basis of the village founded by a Russian entrepreneur G. Sterligov and his family.

The genuinely Russian settlement’s way of life is the village community’s response to the often upsetting challenges of globalization and the changing cultural norms.

Enjoy the local food and craft at the local fair, after the globalized bonanza of the Moscow streets. Witness the tranquil flow of the Russian family life after the cosmopolitan glitter and often dazzling glamour of Moscow.

Take delight in the exquisite architecture of the village, and its surroundings lush and fragrant in summer and more austere in winter, even though not less beatous.

Get insight into the traditional Russian village life and meet those who cherish the believes that have so long formed Old Russia’s identity, often extinguished in larger settlements.

Visit the village’s shop, with its fair-trade, sustainably-produced, locally-made, not genetically modified produce, that works in harmony with the rural lifestyle, from 9 till sunset, on all days except Sunday. Eat at the community’s cozy restaurant, one of the best restaurants in Moscow and the region, with its mouth-watering Russian food.
