A cozy horse carriage will take right to the middle of the woods where you will enjoy delicious, typical liquors and play traditional Russian winter games. This day won't be an ordinary barbecue, it will be a real step into Russian culture. Surrounded by Russian musicians, you'll discover the local culture by eating and drinking what Russian people love the most in winter: hot meat-sticks, tea, vodka. You will listen to some traditional Russian music, experience some horse-sledding, try to play some local games, and all this in a magical snowy landscape.
In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel to start your tour. We will go by minibus to Sergiyev Posad, well-known as an Orthodox Vatican. The owner the place that you will visit, Sergey, will welcome you as soon as you arrive. Then in authentic horse-sleds you will be taken deep inside the snow-covered woods to the barbecue place. After a quick ride, you will arrive at a wonderful location covered in white snow, with fresh air and a warm fireplace where you learn how cook traditional Russian “Shashlik” (meat sticks) yourself and taste champagne and vodka. There is nothing better after such a lunch, than to play traditional Russian games, for example, rope pulling, battle of straw sacks on a log, sawing the log for speed and, more than that, tubing from the hillside. In addition to this program, you will enjoy a Russian Folklore Show (authentic Russian music and songs with accordion, performed by locals). While some people spend their time drinking and having in the woods, other have the opportunity to go on a 20-minute rides across the stunning forest covered with snow. After all this, your driver will bring you back to Moscow.
