Approximately equidistant from Moscow and St. Petersburg in the Novgorod region is the relic Lake Velyo. One of the largest in northwest Russia and perhaps the one that has experienced the least contact with civilization.
This is the territory of Valdai National Park: pristine unspoiled nature, peace and harmony (feelings we do not often experience in everyday life). There is no city fuss, calm, friendly people live here. Clean and clear water is suitable for drinking.
What could the restaurant on the shore of this lake be and what could it be called? Yes, the answer is obvious and prompted by the atmosphere of the amazing place.
"Velyo" - interpretation of Russian hunting cuisine through the prism of modern vision. Careful attitude towards traditions, culinary experience that has been accumulated over the centuries, combined with technological solutions and attention to detail.
The interior is exclusively natural materials. Stone and wood of different species give complexity, versatility and ... naturalness. Warm and cold textures harmoniously combine and complement each other.
In the center of the room - a Russian stove, shaded in black, with fireboxes and a live fire. This element is balanced by the water, which can be seen through the panoramic windows. You have a special feeling when you realize that centuries ago it was the same here.
