Siberian countryside Experience (10 hours)

A visit to a real Russian village of Koptelovo, while there you will get the chance to chop firewood, make fire and “gnat’ samogon” (traditional Russian moonshine).

Koptelovo is an ancient Urals village on the shores of the River Rezh. It is home to a museum of peasant agriculture and the peasant way of life. Koptelovo is often described as a «living» museum — within it, you can touch everything, look into every corner, and even test your own skills and abilities. The museum’s curators have managed to assemble the largest collection of agricultural implements and artifacts in the Urals. All these items, during different periods, belonged to the inhabitants of Koptelovo. Today, the museum complex comprises a 19th century house, a hall focusing on the history of agriculture, a handicrafts pavilion, a smith’s workshop, memorial exhibitions and the main attraction — a genuine peasant «izba» cabin of the 17th century, built without a single nail, that has managed to preserve its original appearance.

You will fetch water with a “koromyslo”, will try your hand at making woolen yarn on a spinning wheel. For dinner you will have potatoes with meat, cucumbers, and homemade wine. After that you will create a “snezhnuyu babu” or snowwoman in winter or a straw doll in summer. The highlight of the excursion is taking part in a Russian folk festival with folkdancing and folksongs and traditional games.
