Gastronomy
The reason for this trip will be local delicacies of the Pskov and Smolensk regions, as well as farm traditions of the Moscow region. You will visit a real cheese dairy and an apiary, learn how to bake bread, have lunch in Pushkin style, taste dishes unknown before. Gastronomic adventures will be diluted with walks in nature reserves (when you still walk in the swamps!) and ancient Russian cities.
