Exploring Russian culture starts with tasting favorite items of national cuisine
One of the best ways to get an insight into orthodox Russian culture is to get acquainted with national dishes and eating habits. Aboard Vodohod ships guests have a chance to taste a great variety of traditional Russian dishes, as meals almost always include Russian option.
In addition to that, there’s a special event which gives an opportunity to taste several kinds of vodka, pickled tomatoes and cucumbers, blinis (pancakes) best eaten with sour cream, jams and honey… or caviar! The guest can enjoy Russian folk dances and songs performed there, but before that the guides reveal some historical aspects of old production of the drink and answer to the question concerning the origin of the name “vodka”.
For sure, no explorer can remain untouched by the vivid atmosphere of orthodox party. Below you can see the photo-report from one of Vodka and blini degustations.
Cheers or “Na zdorovie”
