Tula – The Dacha Alternative

The Russian Dacha has its pluses and minuses. The plus being you own a place outside Moscow in the countryside, the minus being getting there and back! The Tula region is 2 .-3 hours from Moscow on the M2, Simferopolskoye Shosse or Crimean Highway but it is far less congested than the northern or western destinations. Additional benefits are the noticeably warmer summer climate, the cleaner air, the choice of areas with unspoilt natural beauty, less people, the proximity to many Russian historical sites and outdoor pursuits. And much better soil for growing things! Land for dacha prices are starting around $300 per sotka (100 m2), compared with $3,000 for somebody’s backyard in the Moscow region, and building costs are also substantially cheaper. Undoubtedly, costs will rise quite quickly as the area develops, so there is an investment opportunity as well!
