Start your gastro-adventure in the town of Murom, famous for its kalaches and biscuits.
You will have an opportunity to have a look at the "Bread Room" and take a picture with Mr. Kalach himself and meet Ilya Muromets.
After Kalach you can have a ride to Gorokhovets, appreciate the beautiful panorama from the Bald hill, visit factory worker Shorin, his house is a real work of art.
Here in the town you must try the traditional kasha-puchalka cooked in the Russian oven. A walk through the town itself will be especially fascinating - it's built up with traditional mansions that take you back to the merchant's past.
Not so long ago Nizhny Novgorod revived an ancient recipe for meat in hay, which you can taste now and feel your connection to the ancestors who lived in the area.
Take a walk by the Kremlin and head to another ancient town, Shuya, which was once more important than the current regional centre of Ivanovo.
Finally, check out Suzdal - one of the country's best mead is produced here. Have a delicious trip, don't forget to leave space in the luggage compartment for presents for family and friends.
