Izumrudny Les

Only 1,5 hour drive from Moscow you'll find this picturesque chalet type resort where you can stay in the hotel or rent a chalet with your family or friends. It is brand new and all materials used are of high quality. It has a cozy atmosphere due to the forest surroundings, the lake and the natural elements.

There are many activities like a beautiful spa, banya's, a bathing house, 25m indoor pool, kids pool, gym, sports fields (outdoor&indoor), horse riding, playgrounds, a kids club, animal farm, ice-skating (in winter) and more.

They have a nice restaurant with affordable Russian food. They have one English menu and communication is mainly in Russian, but they are very friendly and if you only speak English you will be fine.
