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.
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.
