Unique Dacha Countryside Trip Around Moscow 3 Days

2 reviews
We propose a unique journey in an authentic Russian Izba, lost in the forest in the region of Kostroma, 550 km away from Moscow. This fairy-tale like house was built at the end of the XIXth century by a rich peasant so he could win the heart of his loved one. Following the soviet revolution, the place was taken away from his owner, and the mansion was transformed into a cultural center for soviet propaganda. Then, after the last inhabitants of the region left for the city in the 1970's, the mansion and the village fell into ruin. The nature slowly took over the remaining izbas... until early 2010's, when a mysterious benefactor fell in love with the place and decided to invest enough money to renovate the Izba alike. The work they made is astonishing as they strictly followed the style and techniques from the time to be as loyal as they could to the mansion's history.

I've been going to the "market" as the Russians call it since 1990. Back in the day it was THE place to buy food from people who grew their own. In the winter when there was no fruit or vegetables the stalls were filled with sellers of shoes and clothes. Today, the market is changed. Traders and companies have replaced grow you own sellers. There is a special shed for farmers who sell their meat. Lots of cheeses and sausages and other meat in the covered shed, and I remember the days when that shed was completely empty of sellers. For locals the market still has importance, although less so than in the past because now people shop at supermarkets. For tourists it probably is less interesting, at least if you plan to be there a long time. It is worth strolling through, however, just to get an idea of how people shop.

The trade rows are two sets of circular buildings with a covered walkway around each building on the outer side. Both walkways are lined with some small shops/cafes. The western building contains a daily fresh product market. The eastern building is less lively but does encompass a church. To the south of the market (i.e. towards the Wolga) is a market for garden plants.Between the two circular buildings is a park with a market for typical touristic produce; paintings, cloth, etc. This is the heart of Kostroma’s city centre with several other parks and attractions around. The city is clearly strained to maintain public places but nice views are abound. Best enjoyed on sunny days.

A good guide book or tour guide is advised as the place is full of history, anecdotes and charm and a pair of proper shoes too in you don't want to break a leg surprisingly at a gate facing the main street just across the Mayor's or local government's office. It's more than obvious that these people never step a foot on Kostroma land, so how do they govern then? Despite the buildings and surrounding area being in no good shape, I was happy to see them keeping their historic outlook as some corrupt Moscow constructions companies have managed to side the walls of the 16th century Novodevichiy Monastery with plastic fixes. So hurry to see it while it still looks authentic.

I dont think the trade row itself has anything special. Had lunch there and it was good. There is a small white church inside.
