We will start our gastronomic day from a FOOD MARKET:

ru1Experience one of the city’s food markets where locals sell spare vegetables and fruit from their dacha (country house) plots, any vendor will be happy to let you taste their fruit before purchase… Here you can find imported very juicy watermelons, oranges, bananas… Take your time and select all fruit and vegetables yourself…

Go on and you will find more goods and products: dried fruit, cheeses, nuts, honey, meat from minced beef to lamb chops and other foods. You can usually bargain a bit over prices. Take your time and enjoy the talk with locals! Markets are colorful places to visit even if you do not need to buy.

The next stop of our tour is the famous “ELISEEVSKY” gastronome store:

Named in honour of its former owner and millionaire, Grigory Eliseev, the store became famous not only for its big variety of products, but for luxurious decoration of sales areas in Neo-Baroque taste.  Huge crystal chandeliers, reminding of bunches of grapes, decorate high arches of the sales area.

St. Petersburg has always received special attention from the tourists. Unique monuments and palaces perfectly reveal the history and culture of one of the most beautiful and mysterious city in Russia. National cuisine is an important characteristic of any nation. However, if you ask a foreigner what he knows about Russian cuisine, the answers are quite predictable: caviar, pancakes and soup.

We are happy to see you in Russia!
