What to Expect

Day 1: Driving to Staritsa Town

Stop At: Yaropoletskaya HPP, Yaropolets Russia
We will drive from Moscow to Staritsa town (about 200 km). Most of the day will be spent road tripping. We will see Moscow suburbs, a lot of small villages, abandoned churches with tumbled down crosses, small countryside towns, and nice nature.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Staritsa Local Lore Museum, Volodarskogo St., 38, Staritsa Russia
We will get to Staritsa in the evening and stay there for a night.
Duration: 1 hour

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: Staritsa Hotel

Day 2: Active Day in Staritsa Town

Stop At: Staritsa Quarries, Staritsa Russia
This day we will visit the 700-years old Staritsa town with its beautiful old mansions, abandoned churches and a real monastery, truly the place where time stopped! You'll see the real life of a small Russian town on the banks of the Volga river.
In the afternoon, we'll have an ecotour along the Volga River to see its light evergreen forests, limestone cliffs and the crystal waters of numerous small creeks. You will learn a lot about Russian nature and life of the people here.
We will also visit the ramified network of underground quarries where people mined limestone for churches and monuments. Depending upon your adventurism, you can either wander in some easily accessible beautiful quarries or search the road back from remote parts of the most challenging kilometers-long underground network! The Russian bathhouse («banya») will bring the relaxation after the very active day.
Duration: 12 hours

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: Staritsa Hotel

Day 3: Traditional Village Experience

Stop At: Seliger Lake, Ostashkov Russia
We will visit an elderly couple living in a traditional Russia village. They have a small farm with several horses, cows and ducks. We will help them with their daily work - plowing the land (not by tractors, but by horses), caring for the livestock and cooking food in a traditional Russian oven… And surely we will taste some real fresh milk and eggs while they will be telling us about their common life, their habits, and the households.
Duration: 12 hours

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: Ostashkov Hotel

Day 4: Road Tripping to Novgorod the Great

Stop At: Novgorod Kremlin (Detinets), Sofiyskaya Storona, Veliky Novgorod Russia
We will drive to Novgorod the Great and walk there. Novgorod is the oldest city in European Russia, famous for its history. It was a people's republic at 9-12 centuries! Oh, good times... The city is known for the variety and age of its medieval monuments. The huge fortress at the city center is even more impressive than the Moscow Kremlin!
After the day in Novgorod we will say farewell to each other at the Novgorod train station where the cheap local train well be waiting for you. Only 4 hours later you will be in St. Petersburg to wonder its architecture wandering all its small streets and river channels.
Duration: 12 hours

No meals included on this day.
Accommodation included: Novgorod Hotel
