1. Zvenigorod Day Trip and Russian Countryside
Start your tour with a drive from Moscow to Zvenigorod - one of the oldest towns in the Moscow region. Along the way you can enjoy the beautiful landscape along the Moscow River and there will also be stops at a few old churches. Once arriving at Zvenigorod you will explore its medieval center and check out the 14th-century Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery. You will also get a chance to try a famous Russian summer drink called kvaas (only available during the summertime) with famous Russian pastries called pirozhki. Then you will take a break for lunch in a cafe where you will have the chance to try dishes from Russian or soviet cuisine. After lunch you can visit the Museum of Russian Dessert to enjoy the stories behind some classic local desserts while sipping tea at a Russian tea ceremony. The final stop of the day is at the Ershovo Estate, a gorgeous place to walk around and enjoy the nature.
