About the Host, Matthias Wolfgang
I like to travel a lot, I am a Moscow resident for already 10 years, before I lived in Poland, Black Forest, Hamburg, US, Cuba, Spain and Peru. With pleasure I'll share with you my experiences. My wooden dacha is my source of energy in this metropolis, I was extremely lucky in finding it and if you would like to have a nice and typical Russian experience that you wont forget you should pass by. My house is always open for guests and being partly from the IT business I like very much this new form of travelling that AirBnB makes possible and I like to support it where I can.
Tiny little river beaches&boat dock to jump into Moscow river. The water is clean (it is well protected&serves as drinking water for Moscow. Its a 5min bike ride from my dacha (also by car&foot).
Really nice, cozy, place with Oriental atmosphere in which you have to take your shoes off. You eat in horizontal position with lots of cushions around you.
