Discovering Russia 07 September 2013 17 1622



Mandrogi, an unlikely riverside resort community, provides travellers with the opportunity to live as Russian villagers did in the 19th century. In the 1990's, its traditional wooden homes were dismantled in the Archangelsk and Vologda regions, shipped to the site of the new community, and reassembled piece by piece. Join James Brown as he explores the community and gets the opportunity to ride a horse, milk a cow, catch a fish, set foot in a traditional Russian banya, eat traditional food with the locals and explore the local vodka museum.
