Time to enjoy the summer Russian countryside! This incredibly beautiful traditional Russian village is a place where the past meets the present. You will walk the streets of this beautiful village, go inside old wooden houses, visit the estate of a Russian noble family. We will witness ancient Russian folk craftspeople at work: potters, birchbark goods makers, wood carvers, lace makers and painters on wood. Some of these crafts have earned the world’s recognition as absolutely unique. Your kids can prove themselves in a real smithy and make a great souvenir!
And then…fairy tale time! We shall visit mysterious “Lukomorye” where the characters in all the famous Russian tales live. Russian kebab (“shashlik”) will be served ashore for a picnic lunch today. On your way further to St. Petersburg, try yourself in a talent show or simply chill out at Captain’s cocktail and farewell dinner onboard.
