Just 10 km from the centre of Ljubljana, in the village of Gameljne at the foot of the mountain Šmarna Gora, is where you’ll find this hidden gem. A romantic creek called Gameljščica flows through the village. Follow it to the village’s edge, and suddenly it’s as if you’ve been transported to the greenbelt of Moscow, as you stand in front of a wonderful Russian dacha! All this just 15 minutes by car from central Ljubljana, or an easy bus ride (No.1 or No.8).
We know a lot about the lifestyle of Slovenian farmers. Beautiful, ancient farms have been preserved, and there are many museums to country life. But very little remains to show us anything about the lifestyle of the wealthy bourgeoisie of that time. This unique Russian Dacha is one of the few survivors.
