A Story of Tatiana, Co-founder

My father was a musician, he worked with Russian folklore. He went to numerous expeditions in our country in search of old suits, utensils, musical instruments, but the most important thing  for him  were: national songs, dances, games. He had created his own musical ensemble.

In The end of the 80s the folklore was not so necessary in Russia, but many people in the West were already interested in Russian culture. My father gave concerts in the USA and Europe. Sometimes he  took me as an assistant. In spite of the fact that I was still a child, I was really surprised how many people came to concerts, what genuine interest they showed to everything  Russian, and how people wanted to learn more about us and our country. But all of them asked the same questions: "how do you live there? do bears really walk the streets?. Is it really dangerous in Russia? Do you eat borsch every day? Do you still trust in communism?" etc.

That time I found out that there were millions of people who want to understand Russia, but many prejudices and lack of information disturb them. the 90s and 00s have passed and our country  has changed.  We  began to travel, meet foreigners, make friends, explore. But the questions that we hear are the same  that were 20 years ago.  And this genuine interest is also remained. It has pushed me to the idea to create trips in Russia. And I was not alone in my ideas at all. Natalya also joined our project. There is a 10-years friendship between us, we have common life views. Natalia  also has a huge desire to help people fall in love with Russia.  We both would like to give an opportunity to a first time traveler to resolve all his questions and stereotypes about our country himself. So we decided to to fill our travels not only with regular excursions and standard activities, but with interesting master classes, unusual experience accompanied by locals.
