Read more about the history and use of this Russian cultural object: Samovars
While samovars have fallen out of everyday use, samovars are still used for some occasions. In addition, antique samovars are sometimes family heirlooms and decorative reminders of the past. You can find samovars at markets in Russia (at Izmaylovo Market in Moscow), but you may have a difficult time getting one out of the country, especially if it is a Russian antique.
As a visitor to Russia, you might encounter a samovar in someone's home, at a restaurant, or on the train.
