In the evening we have a delicious local dinner in the most prestigious restaurant in the region: Tsarska. The restaurant is located in the old building of the railway station built in 1903 for the Tsar Nicholas II. Character and the interior are referring to tsarist times. Today this unique example of wooden architecture attracts both gourmets of Polish-Russian cuisine as well as enthusiasts of the Forest and the spirit of the architecture of the late 19th century.
We end the evening next to the fireplace or in the Russian Banya (the price is not included).
