Unique Dacha Countryside Trip Around Moscow 3 Days

We propose a unique journey in an authentic Russian Izba, lost in the forest in the region of Kostroma, 550 km away from Moscow. This fairy-tale like house was built at the end of the XIXth century by a rich peasant so he could win the heart of his loved one. Following the soviet revolution, the place was taken away from his owner, and the mansion was transformed into a cultural center for soviet propaganda. Then, after the last inhabitants of the region left for the city in the 1970's, the mansion and the village fell into ruin. The nature slowly took over the remaining izbas... until early 2010's, when a mysterious benefactor fell in love with the place and decided to invest enough money to renovate the Izba alike. The work they made is astonishing as they strictly followed the style and techniques from the time to be as loyal as they could to the mansion's history.
