Full description
After departing from Odessa in your modern coach, you will venture toward the Tarutino/Sarata region. Once here, you will visit the green tourism complex of "Frumushika Nova". Frumushika Nova is a Bessarabian village-museum set out in the open air. Its manors have been created in the national style of different influences, including Moldovan, Gagauz, Ukrainian, Russian and Jewish houses. After a traditional breakfast, you will begin an excursion around the complex "Bessarabskaya village", an open-air museum containing Bulgarian, Gagauz and Moldovan farmsteads of the 18th-20th centuries. You will also encounter German and Jewish houses and a farmyard of the Russian family of a hero of socialist labor. You will also encounter a mini-zoo of elite breeds of pheasants, wild boars, raccoons, hares, lama, horses and donkeys on this farm. After this visit, you will venture to the ethnographic museum of the Moldavian village of the 18th century, before indulging in a local wine tasting. Following this wine tasting, you will walk through a "park of the Soviet period", a museum of plastic art from the era of socialist realism. After a Bessarabian style lunch consisting of  "zama" (pheasant), lamb, assorted brynza, sausages, pickles, wine, rakia, uzvar, you will have recreational time to swim in the pool or to partake in bee therapy before returning back to Odessa.
