Renovated to showcase typical Russian living in the 20th century
The Russian Dacha on the outskirts of Ljubljana changed quite a few owners throughout the years, but now found one, who wanted to show the heritage of a Russian-styled house to a wider audience. The sole purpose of building the dacha was to restore the legacy, both inside and outside, bringing the guests back to the early 20th century, to a time between the years of 1908 and 1915. Attention to detail was key, as it now allows visitors to authentically experience a bygone era. They offer guided tours, tea in the library, Tzar’s dinner, privatisation of the entire villa, a summer garden with a coffee shop and other special experiences upon agreement.
Another way to charm your participants at the Russian Dacha, especially those who enjoy nice cars, is to rent out a Rolls-Royce Phantom VI, which was in the ownership of Queen Elizabeth’s cousin, Princess Alexandra, in 1971. Along with organising events in their spaces, the company also organises different trips, specialized mostly on Russia, but to other destinations like Tuscany, Istanbul, Iran, Lebanon or New York as well.
WHAT IS A DACHA?
A dacha is a seasonal or year-round second home, often located in the exurbs of Russian-speaking and other post-Soviet countries. Dachas originated as small country estates given as a gift by the tsar, and have been popular among the Russian upper- and middle-classes ever since. They were extremely popular in the Soviet Union, because people did not have the opportunity to buy land and build a house where they wanted.
