A Russian Village In Connecticut


Hidden within a canopy of trees and carpet of ferns in Southbury, Connecticut is an historic jewel called CHURAEKVA, the Russian Village.

It is currently on the list of National historic sites and it was something Tony the trolley discovered this weekend!

This village was created by two Russian authors, one of whom was the son of Leo Tolstoy! It was envisioned to be an artistic and cultural center and notable American-Russian figures are associated with Churaekva. There is a chapel which was financed by Igor Sikorsky.

There are so many hidden treasures in Connecticut we hope you continue to explore and discover them!

How do you get here? Take I-84, East, get off on exit 13, left on Fishrock, left on Ichabod road and then left on Russian Village Road.
