Just a tea place!: "Restaurant on a carriage" Top 5 Page for this destination Istra Restaurant Tip by Anya_D

Istra Restaurants: 1 reviews and 0 photos

I do not know where you can eat there! I suggest you bring sandwiches with you! but I know definitely where you can have tea from a Russian samovar (I guess in summertime only, at in winter - at -20 centigrade like today - you tea will freeze before you make the first sip!!).

Favorite Dish: There is a wind mill there (see more about it in 'Must see activities'), which has a fenced yard around it. You can have tea there from a Russian samovar! They will bring you teapot, a bowl full of cracknels, and sugar. Very tasty and relaxing! 10 Rubles per person only (33 cents)!! And very stylish: to have tea sitting on a carriage! Havind the monastery in the background for pictures...

Price Comparison: least expensive
Directions: 2 minutes on foot from the monastery! Ask for directions or take a horse carriage!
Price: less than US$10
