This initiative in Russia is nothing short of unique. In the city of St. Petersburg, there is an apartment complex that allows you to live a lifestyle that is… umm, not really Russian. Yes, a vegetarian apartment complex has sprung up in the suburbs of the city, where you can only reside if you don’t consume alcohol, meat or even cigarettes. Known as Veda Village, this apartment, is the first of its kind in Russia. According to reports by RT News, it permits people of similar principles and shared lifestyle to live under the same roof.

As reported by RT News, whoever is a vegetarian is welcome to live in this vegetarian apartment. “The sales agent holds an interview with a potential buyer to find out whether he is vegetarian or not. If not, the client gets a refusal. The main thing about this complex is an opportunity to live and evolve together with like-minded people,” said Maya Podlipskaya, manager of Veda Village.

But, why a project like Veda Village? As per RT News reports; people behind this unique concept believe that living a life like this would help in forming a sustainable community which will become self-sufficient in terms of energy, water, waste treatment, and food production. Designers of this apartment complex have also used Feng Shui (Chinese system of harmonizing everything) and Vaastu (a traditional Hindu system of architecture). Veda Village completely prohibits the consumption of meat, drinking alcohol and smoking. That’s not all, the apartment complex also has a yoga centre, gym, spa, shops, vegetarian restaurant, day-care facility and an education centre too.
