The Samovar House is a small samovar museum located in the Old Believers’ village near Lake Peipus, which has a private collection with more than 100 different and very special samovars and objects related to samovars.
In the cosy museum, you can find a variety of information about samovars. We talk about their history, shape, size, and tea drinking traditions.
Visitors are also offered the opportunity to drink tea made in an authentic samovar – Ivan-chai – and try cooked sugar.
Groups can book workshops and tours for up to 50 people.
