Zvenigorod Day Trip and Russian Countryside

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.

From Moscow: Dog-Trekking with Optional Kayaking

2. From Moscow: Dog-Trekking with Optional Kayaking

Start with pickup from Moscow and travel by minibus to one of the largest dog kennels in Russia, located well outside the city. Upon arrival, meet the owner of the kennel who will welcome you with a cup of tea. Learn about the owner's 10 years of experience and the excellent care given to all dogs. Discover more about the breeds who live at the kennel, and their place in Russian history and local culture. Then, meet over 120 beautiful huskies, and take plenty of photos with them. Discover the affection huskies have for humans, a famous trait of the breed. Then, choose your companion for the day, and set off on your hike.  Follow a 5-kilometer trail through the woods with your dog and a professional kayur (dog-sled chief) who will be your guide. Discover scenic sections of the Moskva River with the huskies leading the way. Choose the option to embark on an additional kayaking excursion at the end of the hike. Receive full instruction on how to use your kayak and paddle down the Moskva River and enjoy views of nature from the water.  At the end of either option, meet the owner back at the kennel and enjoy a delicious traditional lunch comprised of oladushki (Russian pancakes) and herbal tea. After lunch, bid farewell and be transferred back to your accommodation in Moscow.
