Old believers imageOld believers

A village that you will not find on Google Maps, people who are not on Facebook, a place photos of which do not exist on the Internet*. Get ready to get back in time. The Old Believers live in the village of Nikulino - people who have honoured traditions and their religious way of life for centuries. Old believers are effectively closed from the outside world: there are no TVs, computers, the Internet and mobile phones in their homes. It took incredible efforts to persuade local residents to show you at least fragments of their archaic life and unique culture, they will even show you how to extract cedar oil from cones in the old fashioned way.

Visit bright Siberian fair with songs, dances, raw fish stroganina and souvenirs. Try national treats and real homemade delicacies, play a shaman tambourine, surprise your loved ones with unique souvenirs from the Russian taiga.

*Please respect the local culture: any photo and video shooting in the village is prohibited.
