A cottage “dacha” in Russia is a small summer house with a garden for a city family. First “dachas” were known in the beginning of XVIII century in the days of Peter the Great. They were like homesteads that were given by the Russian czar to his favorites. During this time the word “dacha” entered the language: the meaning of “dacha” comes just from the verb “davat” (to give). Times went on and on but the tradition of spending time out of the city remains. In Spring when the sun only starts to bake and the snow is gone unveiling damp ground, town people come to check houses after the Winter, inhale some fresh air and feel the closeness of Summer.
