Is "Dinner with the Peasants" offered to tour groups in Russia?

by PTadin

I am looking for a unique dinner experience for my large group (26 people) in Russia. When I took a tour group to Romania, the tour operator offered a "dinner with the peasants". We drove to a farm in a rural community and sat down to a nice private dinner prepared by a peasant family. Does anyone know if this unique experience is offered to tour groups in Russia? This was an incredible experience in Romania and allowed us to see Romanian life up close and personal. My group will be in the Moscow, Novgorod, and St. Petersburg areas of Russia in November.

I concur with Lev Nikolaievich that Feel Yourself Russian is well worth the money - nice venue, very professional show, nice buffet with champagne and caviar in between.

Thanks, Lev, for your insight into the areas. You've convinced me that there is no comparison between Russia and Romania.

Can you tell me if the "folk show with fourchet at Nikolaevsky Palace" in St. Petersburg is the folk show "Feel Yourself Russian"?

Also, what is "fourchet"? For another $26 per person, we can do the gala dinner. Is it worth the price increase?

Thanks again, Lev!

Lev,

You also mention cruises in St. Petersburg: "Or you could have a dinner cruise on a boat on the Neva River. The best ones offer a late start around 10pm, with the idea of sailing down the Neva at 1am to see all the city bridges opening ahead of you." We will be in St. Petersburg in late November. Are the cruises still running, and if so, is it worth it at this time of year?

Thanks!

Lots of travel agencies in St Petersburg offer dinner in a russian family. So you can get in touch with russian people and taste the russian food prepared by them. I think that it is what you meant and looking for. It is just the word "peasants" that was upsetting for certain people.

Dinner in Russian family with 26 tourists???????? Lol. Typical urban apartments for family of 3-4 is 40-60 sq.m, not more, as soon as this service is organized in not too wealthy families. No problem to find such place for 2-4 people (dances are not guaranteed:-))))) but for big group......

they can go in small groups !

Thanks for all your insights. Of course I was in no way trying to upset anyone with the medieval word "peasants". "Dinner with the Peasants" is offered to tour groups in Romania by tour operators. However, the place we visited was with a family who actually owns and runs a large farm and has a large dining hall for tourists. It is more of a folk show as they are dressed in period coutumes. I think it is an attempt to show what life was like in medievel times.

Thanks again!

Just to reverse the discussion, what would a dinner with peasants be in America?
we are not sure. Maybe a church potluck?

Hi:

In Canada for example, you can go on a farm and have dinner with what we call "the farmers" and eat the products of their farm (vegetables, meat, etc.) and at the same time have a look around (it is quite fun for the kids who can see the animals).

Travel Tips for Saint Petersburg

Everybody who visit St....

by kfh1

Everybody who visit St. Petersburg should not miss the Winter Palace as it is definitely one of the most treasured museums in the world. The palace was finished during the reign of Catherine the Great. It also served as a residence of the Russian Tsars for a century until the revolution of 1917. The magnificence of the Palace Square became my fondest memory of St. Petersburg. Looking at the square and the surrounding palaces, it was almost as if I could portray how Imperial Russia was like and what kind of life the Russian Tsars led.

Canals (Part IV)

by Canadienne

St. Petersburgs encompasses more than 100 islands and is crossed by more than 50 canals and rivers.

The city was under constant threat of flooding from its very first days ~ in fact, the entire city was submerged due to rising water levels in 1824. . .the flood destroyed over 400 buildings.

A dam project was intiated in the late 1980's, in order to prevent a future catastrophe.

When visiting someone's home,...

by polrbear

When visiting someone's home, bring flowers (never an even number in the bouquet, though). If visiting a family with a small child, bring a gift for the child instead. In a family's home, you will be asked to remove your shoes at the door and be given slippers to wear, so wear socks with no holes :). For men walking with a woman, it is polite to be your chivalrous best - opening doors, offering a hand when she is stepping on or off a bus or in and out of a minivan. Walking arm-in-arm with a woman on the streets is very normal and a nice change of pace from our American customs. Learn the cyrillic alphabet and you will have an easier time of getting around town. You can find a reference and some common phrases here:

Unusual sightseeing on a boring way to the airport

by Nevskij93

When going on Moskovskij Avenue to Pulkovo Airport, one does not get much to see once the center has been passed.
However, there is a very nice jewel hidden just behind large concrete architectural structures of Stalin's era - The Chesma Church.
It was designed by French architect Felten between 1777 and 1780 and named in honor of the Russian victory over the Turks at the Battle of the Bay of Chesma in 1770 in Asia Minor.

This neo-gothic church is situated on the street parallel to Moskovskij Avenue and one can ask the driver to take a very small turn to see it.

Address:
Gastello Street #12 (former Lensoveta Street)

Church of Saint Catherine

by Canadienne

This church (1762-1783), located on Nevsky Prospekt just west of the Grand Hotel Europe, is the largest and oldest Roman-Catholic church in Russia. It is set back a good piece from the street and the makeshift square in front of the church entrance was alays filled with artists and their paintings when we passed by it.

The church was closed during the Soviet era, used as a museum, then a warehouse. It was later to be converted into a concert hall, but as the transformation was completed in the 80's, the interior was completely destroyed and the ceiling and walls heavily damaged in a fire. In 1992, the building was finally returned to the Catholic Church for restoration.

Open to the public since 2000, it is a working church and worth dropping into for a brief visit, as you are bound to pass it many times during your stay.
