Local

We are Anton and Tamara, the young couple of travelers, spending more than half of a year outside the hometown. We know almost everything about travelling and believe that the best way to feel a country is to taste it from inside, to become a part of its culture and make local friends.
We are travelers and adventurers. And we know exactly what a tourist needs to understand another culture, to feel local, to truly relax and enjoy the trip.

Description

Moscow’s most authentic food market is located within the walls of an old monastery. During our walk through this wonderful market, we’ll taste foods and drinks that you’ve never even heard of, share recipes for our national dishes, talk about Russian culture, and recall amusing historical facts.

Here’s a list of some of what you can taste and buy at the market:

* Fresh fruits and vegetables
* Caviar
* Cooked, salted, dried, and smoked fish
* Cooked, salted, dried, and smoked meat
* Pickled vegetables and mushrooms
* A wide range of dairy products
* Central Asian sweets, spices, and nuts
* Many other foods, all from ecological farms!

Afterwards, we’ll visit the beautiful Russian Orthodox Old Believers Church. If you like, we can also continue to the constructivist district, which still evokes memories of Lenin and the slogan ‘Workers of the world, unite!’

We highly recommend you to combine this experience with ‘Russian Cooking Class in Moscow: Pelmeni, Okroshka & More’: www.likealocalguide.com/moscow/tours/russian-cooking-class-in-moscow-pelmeni-okroshka-more.
