You see so many palaces in St Petersburg that it can make you think that in Russia there were only Tzars and the nobility. However, this for sure is not true, and the majority of people were simple peasants, merchants and craftsmen. They lived in innumerous villages around big cities, and their lifestyle was very different from that of the aristocrats. If you wish to see how ordinary people lived in Russia in the past centuries, welcome to an authentic Russian village just out of St Petersburg!
