The legendary Russian dacha – a summer home away from the city. What does it mean to go there for summer? A place of literary discussions, balls and music soirees, of garden tea parties and tennis matches, or maybe an infinite row of garden beds with potatoes and carrots and incessant toil? What were the games that children played there and what were adults doing all summer holidays? This is the story of dacha in the late 19th – early 21th centuries Russia with dreamy and nostalgic illustrations by Olesya Gonserovkaya.
