From early summer the word dacha is frequently mentioned by the inhabitants of apartment blocks throughout Russia, referring to a patch of land allotted to city dwellers where planting of potatoes and other root vegetables is carried out. Over the last four decades a dacha house was commonly constructed on such an allotment and this became a kind of symbol of Soviet-period urbanisation, with the number of dacha plots issued to city dwellers being always quoted in top governmental reports. Nevertheless despite the fact that the dacha plots have become a common sight on the outskirts of any city, and rumours in Russia’s capital, Moscow, that the number of allotments is practically equal to the number of apartment flats, this does not indicate a particular well-being in society but rather highlights the existence of problematic issues which were rarely perceived in the daily routine.
