Dacha, according to Wikipedia, is the “Russian word for a seasonal or year-round second home” typically located outside the cities.

They began to appear in Russia during the reign of Peter the Great as small estates in the country. The Dacha evolved through the years; some became a place of gardening for those who worked in the cities. (Source – Wikipedia)
