The Mushkino Farmstead, located 25 kilometres outside of Kaliningrad, is known for its cosy framed houses, well-kept fields and gardens and laid-back lifestyle. All of these things have helped to make this place a popular destination among tourists looking to enjoy a relaxing nature holiday filled with activities such as hunting and fishing. Visitors can catch mirror carp that swim in the local pond and go salmon fishing as well. They can also try their hand at golf, while those looking for a bit more of an active rest can ride along the many cycling trails or take a cruise around the area on an ATV. Deer seem to be quite a popular attraction here. Farmers breed fallow, spotted and red deer on the farm’s semi-open territory and some of this wildlife is hunted on specially allocated grounds. The executive chef of one local restaurant specialises in making delicious game dishes and is able to prepare more than two dozen dishes from just one deer.
