No one can argue that the main drink in Kislovodsk is narzan. But in the 19th century it was impossible to imagine a vacation at a resort without a cup of tea. Like merchants, landowners and secular lions of the Tsarist era, we will stroll along the mansions of Kurortny Boulevard, plunging into the history of the city. And then we will continue our conversation over a pot-bellied samovar with charades, jokes and, of course, sweets.

What awaits you
Kurortny Boulevard in detail Walking along the most picturesque and lively street of Kislovodsk, you will feel like guests of a 19th century resort. We will talk about the origin of the Kavminvody region, the history of the city and its eminent guests, and recall the legend of Narzan. And on the way, of course, we will consider the most beautiful buildings of Kurortny Boulevard: the mansions of the merchants and landowners Zipalovs, Takhtamirovs, Beshtau, Smirnovs, Kekishevs and Mistrovs
Gatherings with a samovar: tea drinking, charades and conversations The second - warm and cozy - part of the excursion will take place over a cup of hot tea. During traditional tea drinking with a samovar, you will learn about the tea traditions of the Tsarist era, solve charades and riddles, look into a guide to the Caucasus of the 19th century and compare how the resort public rested before and now. Pancakes, sushki, candied fruits, baklava, jam and a secret Russian dessert, which many loved, but undeservedly forgot, will accompany the sincere conversation. In addition, during tea drinking, you can take a picture in the image of a landowner or a merchant, a Grebenskaya Cossack woman or a mountaineer.
