    Hi guys!

    We are in a proccess of renovation our old soviet legacy appartment in Miass city, Chelyabinsk region. It is right on the TransSiberian Railway, so if you are doing this traditional route, we are perfect stopover!

    We will be happy to get some creative help with professional interior design and building: walls treatment, floors etc. We also planning to give new life to our old furniture, and probably wooden structures on sun porch.

    Miass itself is terrific: touristic area surrounded by numerous lakes. One of them is Turgoyak, that has a title of the second cleaneast lake after Baikal on CIS territory. We are in so called Golden Valley right in the oldest mountain ranges in Ural.

    Please come and join us! Stay and have the most authentic Russian experience!

    What else ...

    The convenient way to get to us is by railway: you just get off at the Miass station, but getting from the airports (Chelyabinsk and Yekaterinburg) is also quite easy reach.
    Internet connection is through mobile number at the moment but we are working on that, and may be in few months we will be able to provide you with Internet connected PC. For now you will need appropriate SIM card.
    Summer time we provide you with Garry Fisher bike, nice one! And if needed we give you a car if you feel comfortable in Russian trafic.
