Full description
Experience an authentic off-the-beaten-track tour outside of Moscow. You will be able to see the true Russia, try local food, and feel like a Russian for a day. You will begin with a visit to Tver, a small city that has been Moscow’s main rival for 240 years, and could have become the capital of the country. These days, unlike westernized Moscow, Tver is far from being a modern city and preserves its original appearance and lifestyle of a Russian provincial town.

You will then travel to Tver and back on a comfortable high-speed train for around 1.5 hours. This journey will allow you to contemplate countryside landscapes including the Moscovian Sea, an artificial 390-square-foot water deposit created during the Stalin reign which is complete with endless pine forests. In Tver you will learn about the life of Russians during various periods of history. You will also learn about life during the reign of Ivan The Terrible and the reign of emperors, before and after the October 1917 revolution to the modern day.

You will then be invited to try some of the most unusual Russian delicacies, which aren't able to be found anywhere else in the region. You will receive advice from a local foodie on your future culinary adventures in Russia; play Russian games, and participate in sorcery and tradition. You will later visit an interactive Soviet museum where you will be able to not only see but can also touch all its items, and will also have the opportunity to try on real military uniforms. Following a long and exciting day, a comfortable high-speed train will take you back to the capital.
