About the tour

When you think of Russia, what comes into your mind first? For many of you, vodka will be at the top of the list. It makes sense. After all, Russia is traditionally one of the main vodka consumption countries. At the same time, there are so many myths about it spread even by some respectable sources. Indeed, there is a whole culture of drinking vodka. After all, for Russians, it's more than just a drink. On this tour, we will talk about the meaning of vodka in Russian culture and how to drink vodka like a Russian, what kind of snacks you need and what vodka you should buy in Russia. Moreover, Russian drinking culture goes beyond vodka and there are many other alcoholic drinks we will cover. The stream will be from a Moscow apartment. You can get vodka or any other drink before the tour, but more importantly is to be in good mood.
