Enjoy traditional Siberian lunch and "Siberian merchant" dinner. We also invited a local cossack band to perform today and to introduce you to the Siberian Cossack culture. Don't miss a chance to see the other side of Siberia. With these high fences and wide streets, real peasant estates, a village shop, a tavern, a forge, and even a local prison, imagine what the life here was 150 years ago. Everything is real: a furnace, a polati and knocking with a wooden spoon requesting your dinner to be served on a wooden table...Today, we travel back in time.

Feel yourself real Russian - or, a Russian in a Siberian exile, when you freshen up with traditional Kvas in a tavern. Cinnamon sbiten is especially delicious, not to mention local pancakes. During Tsars' time, every political prisoner got 8 rubles per month when serving a term here and you could buy a cow on this amount.
