We offer several programs, which are quite different from the traditional ones although it does not mean that you will miss something important in your sightseeing program. Spend one or few days enjoying interesting suburbs of Moscow and St.Petersburg with local Russian families. Participate in cookery master classes of the Russian cuisine, taste local food as a guest of a local host, feel the pureness of Russian nature during a day outdoors in the Russian suburb.

**** ETHNOMIR is a unique project featuring a small model of diverse Earths population on the territory of about 90 ha. When completed the park will include 52 compounds each dedicated to the culture of a particular nationality. The compounds will feature a group of buildings built in traditional ethnical style: a hotel, a craft shop, a museum, a restaurant featuring traditional cuisine, a souvenir shop, and other facilities typical of this or that ethnicity. Each community has its own tradition keeper, who can tell about the precious culture of his or her nation conveyed through traditions, festivals, crafts, folklore, mythology, architecture, history, national cuisine, and traditional medicine. The key principle behind the ETHNOMIR concept is equality of all cultures regardless of economic development level or international status of a given country. The project will have been fully completed by 2019. Any guest visiting ETHNOMIR can stay at an ethnic style hotel (a felt yurt, a rawhide tent or an Indian tipi and enjoy the atmosphere and culture of each presented country.
