You guys are the best!

It was not just going to the countryside. It was a precious opportunity to immerse deeply in the Russian soul, with many magnificent churches and experiencing even monastery food, everything so magic. Since it was Sunday, I had the opportunity to attend some Orthodox Church mass, a privilege I will never forget. The tour also included visiting small villages and typical Russian dachas as well as countryside life. I have no words to thank Anton for this opportunity.
