Varyazhsky Dvor means Viking's Yard in Russian but it actually has another - and by far simpler a name - Svargas which is translated from Indo-European as Sunny Sky.
This is a purely private project which is sixteen years old. Their life has been tough - constant fight with local red tape and corruption, volatile cash-flow and even a direct arson attack from hostile competitors. They were burnt virtually to ashes (!!!) and reconstructed the whole thing with their own hands! (One can still see charred walls on the second (English - first) floor.
To understand what goes on there please read a review by the guy from Vermont. I'd only add that you can also try a smashing old-style lunch there - Vikings' cabbage or pea (no rubbish cream!) soup and home-made ham hock (Haxe, Eisbein) with potatoes. But - attention! - this service is oursourced so please get in touch with the complex in advance and bear in mind that if the guys are missing there'll be absolutely no opportunity to even have a snack there. So mind it in the course of your planning. But if they ARE there then first thing to do upon arrival should be approaching them and making an order. Then go to their smithy, throw axes, shoot a bow, try chainmail and other medieval haute couture stuff, etc. 'coz in an hour the meals will be ready and you won't have to wait.
Their parking is rather modest and this should be taken into account as well.
And toilets... Mind-blowing smell. Get ready for a simple obsolete outhouse. Very disappointing.
Apart from this - magnificent and very interesting. Recommended!

I don't think they offer their services in English, but it's worth learning Russian just to spend a day here. We went as a group that included both American and Russian students. The Vikings were a lot of fun, constantly teasing us and cracking jokes and threatening to slay us with their huge swords and axes.

They first split us up into teams and had us play tug of war (Viking-style). They then set two people on a wooden board and gave each a bag of felt balls to smack each other with until someone fell off. After that they dressed two of our bravest students up in 13th century chainmail and armor, including Viking helmet, shield, and sword and had them duel for a bit (not to first blood!). After that we pet some dogs and goats and learned how to throw axes and shoot a bow and arrow. Finally (despite the admonishments of our teachers, as we were going over time), the main Viking man (Ulf) forged a metal hook in his smithy, explaining the history of blacksmithing among Baltic Vikings all the while.

It's definitely best to go in a group, although they will organize an individual program for you if you can't. They also sell some of their wares (I'm still mad I didn't buy anything), including leather wallets, coins, knives, hooks, buttons, and pictures. It seemed like the animals were all rescues, and they had a box for donations for the animals.

tl;dr Don't miss this.
