Interaction with guests
We invite you to share with us our life in village. So you can take a participation in any activity we do. For example, we can show & explain you hot to organize Russian smoke sauna ( called a black banya). This banya, which is heated by a wood fire, do not have a chimney. Only after the fire has burned out, the smoke has come out of the banya and the floor and benches have been cleaned you can go in for a sweat and a wash. & in our opinion this is one of the most delightful activity in Russia. And banya is an extremely useful exercise for health, wealth & happiness. Fishing, swimming, cycling, relaxing & meeting with true Russian culture - we will glade to show you our sweet mother Russia.
