Russian Dacha

A Dacha is a place in the countryside where Russians like to spend holidays, especially in summer. Most houses are small and wooden, usually with a garden at the back where people grow vegetables. It’s common for many families to send their children to the Dacha for the whole summer.

    I’d like to spend a whole summer in a dacha!

    She is gloriously sulky looking – put her next to the Carven resort 2012 model and they would be like two peas in a pod. You think she’d be more happy lazing around in a dacha.

    I like it! I’m not Russian but had to learn Russian for seven years in school.
    Some bits here remind me of my childhood… the cheap lace curtains, like the yellow one covering the sofa… the colorful plastic strips covering the door… or the real ragrug… we never had any of these things but my grandma had all of them! :) :) :) and of course we always loved hangin’ out at our grandparents’. :)
