The decor, the dishes and the prices will take you back to the communist years from the moment you step through the door.

Pravda Restaurant

Hearty traditional soups.

This place is great for people passing through the city, like backpackers or students, and especially for those who don't want to spend much on food but fancy something a bit different. This restaurant is a genuine throwback to the communist era. The decor is rather kitsch and it certainly goes all out with paintings of Lenin, The Internationale (famous socialist anthem) and even communist dishes. In this restaurant, which isn’t exactly the height of fashion, even the prices seem stuck in the communist era with a meal costing around 100-300 roubles (2-7 euros). The selection of vegetarian dishes on its traditional Russian menu is another point in favour. Sticking to tradition, they also serve a good range of typical soups and it is a great place to enjoy local Russian cuisine.
