Wat je gaat doen

We meet our guests at the gate to the building, show them the typical St.-Petersburg court yard inside the building. We will bring them to our old style and cozy apartment and tell them about it and about our family, that has been living in the historic centre already more than 120 years.
We will have a lunch or a dinner with hors d'oeuvres (Russian salad, herring and rye bread), borscht or forest mushroom soup or pea and ham soup; cabbage or meat pie baked to my family heritage recipes; tea and coffee with mouth-watering home-made cookies or cakes or pastry. Vegetarian, lactose-free, glutene-free - we can cater for any requirements.
We will have many things to discuss. Q&A sessions are always open and sincere.
We speak fluent English and I can speak some Italian and German as well.
I used to be a tour guide so I can tell about the city and its history, life in the former USSR and nowadays Russia and just tell Russian jokes. We have two very friendly cats.
You are welcome to take as many photos as you like!
It is not only about a meal - it is about having a glimpse behind St.Pb doors, having a personal touch to your travel, finding new friends in a different country, about people-to-people diplomacy!
If you are traveling alone - you will not be lonely this evening. If you travel with friends - book a dinner with us and you can surprise them!
Other things to note
Please contact me to discuss - what would be your preference - lunch, or dinner AND THE TIME!

It is not only about good food, but about meeting peple and become friends. My husband Sasha and daughter Natasha speak English fluently.

Waar je naartoe gaat

We will have our lunch (or dinner) in a traditional St.-Petersburg old style apartment that many tourists like to visit. We will also show a typical St.-Petersburg "water well-shaped" court yard inside the building. The location of the apartment is quite special - almost every building here is a piece of art.

A truly great evening Elena and her family were very kind and receptive. We talked for hours, exchanging experiences and getting to know more about the differences in our cultures. Elena is an English translator, so foreigners can know for sure that there will not be any communication barriers. The whole meal was delicious and represented traditional Russian cuisine and customs, which added to the experience. Also, it was a great opportunity to be inside a Russian home, as the apartment was decorated in a very traditional way. We highly recommend this experience, as it enrichened so much our trip to Russia.

The dinner at Elena‘s and Sasha‘s place was exceptionally good. The food itself was delicious, also me being vegetarian was taken into account. The setting in their private home felt special, really like diving into their lives. Elena and Sasha were very open and shared their experiences, knowledge and anecdotes about their lives and history of their city. We had forgotten to mention that we‘ll bring our todler-son with us. The spontaneous guest was also warmly welcomed by the hosts. The evening made me a true fan of this kind of experience! Thanks Elena and Sasha for your warm welcome in your house! Marieke

Elena and Sacha opened doors; revealed the unexpected. Their apartment with its old-world charm. Russian culinary delights. Historical, emotional and cultural perspectives of life in Saint Petersburg in the last 100 years. Refreshing conversations with depth - wherever you join in. In my view you should take this opportunity .

Meeting and dining with Elena and her husband was a wonderful experience. My friend and I had dinner at Elena's our last night in Russia, and it was such a perfect, personable, and friendly culmination of our whole trip. Elena and Sasha are gracious hosts, very interesting to talk with, open and loving people. I highly recommend this experience! It adds a great personal dimension to one's travel.
