If you want to feel real soviet dacha experience:

— hear the stories about dachas in USSR and take a look how did it look ( everything is old-fashioned inside)
— do shashlyki-making and beer-drinking
— play cards ( DURAKA!) and table soccer
— get unique workshop "Hat from a newspaper"
— make some agricultural of other work ( only if you want to;)
— relax near Dnipro river
— feel yourself like a real "Dachnik" and get a TOTAL rest and a lot of fun

Soviet Dacha Tour (BBQ!) - customer reviews

What a cool 'tour'! More like hanging out with some chill Ukrainian friends out in the country. As a first time visitor to Kyiv (and not speaking any Ukrainian or Russian), I never would have been able to have such a great experience on my own. Knowing this tour was booked through Sputnik, I knew the safety and quality were there. And they were. Unexpected was the easy friendships with other Ukrainians and Russians. We laughed. We ate. We drank. We played foosball (OK, we LOST at foosball). We sat by the river. Ahhh. What a wonderful, memory-filled afternoon.

We spent a fantastic afternoon learning about Ukraine and Ukrainian cuisine with Yulia.

Yulia offers a variety of meals and it all comes with the authenticity of a Ukrainian home and kitchen, allowing you to escape the city centre and see the tourist-free Lviv!

Yulia is a fantastic host and if we'd definitly recomend a cooking class with her if you happen to be in Lviv!

Me and my friends went on this tour and we have a great time. Julia was very nice, and patient with us, whilst we helped to cook our meal of Chicken Kiev, Borsch and cottage cheese pancakes. It took longer than it says, but that was due to use not flly telling Julia what we wanted to make - so make sure you let her know so she doesn't need to change her plans!

The only criticism I would suggest is that if you are already living in Kiev then you probably know and use Billa, which we used for our buying our ingredients. We would've liked to have used a more traditional type of market available - something that a non-Russian speaking person would find difficult to access.

The food we made was absolutely delicious - the borscht was sensational, and the chicken kievs were delightful! Thank you Julia for a wonderful afternoon

I was lucky enough to meet Julia through Sputnik and enjoy a wonderful day shopping for the fresh ingredients we would use in our meal. I had always wanted to learn how to make varenyky and Julia even accommodated my desire to make a potato filling. We spent the early evening preparing the dough and filling for our meal, made a lovely fresh salad and had some wine. What a great experience,shopping in a local market, preparing and cooking in her home and Julia is a warm, friendly person with will make your visit memorable. I cannot say enough about my experience and how much I enjoyed being part of a real Ukrainian experience. Please do this class if you are looking for an authentic way to enjoy some of your time in beautiful Kyiv.

Очень рада узнать проект «в лицах» и живых историях людей. Показательно, что Спутник смог собрать таких образованных, интересных и стремящихся личностей. Благодаря душевной и информативной встрече осень стала более яркой и теплой ,отдельное спасибо Юле! В результате есть ощущение единства с коллегами по цеху, более четкое видение и понимание что и как делать, ну а главное – желание делать )
