Nikolay’s parents were well-educated, hard-working people. His mother, Vera Anatolievna, was a soloist in the Gosteleradio Choir and an excellent piano player. His father, Andrey Dmitrievich, was a talented artist and a good violin player. Nikolay and his older sister Nina grew up in an artistic environment, surrounded by bright, talented people.

Despite the hardships of post-war life, Nikolay received highest music education, having graduated from the Ipatiev Academy of Music and subsequently from the Moscow Conservatory with specialization in cello. Nikolay dedicated his life to work, but he was also an excellent swimmer and skier and a great volleyball player. Nikolay Peregudov was a distinguished cello player, People’s Artist of Russia. For over 50 years he worked with the Yuri Silantiev Grand Symphony Orchestra. He toured the world with his orchestra, giving people the joy of music.
Nikolay Andreevich was an intelligent and a handsome man. He knew how to love and joy life
He was a passionate football fan and a keen mushroom picker. He loved to travel and read and was a good photographer. Nikolay built a house with his own hands, and planted a beautiful garden for his family. He loved to have a tasty meal in the family circle as much as he did big holiday feasts with friends. For each of those important events our grandmother and mother baked beautiful, tasty pies. And like in many other families, a pie became a symbol of get-together, a gathering of family and friends.
Here at the Nikolay Bar-Bakery we tried to create what our father and grandfather would have surely liked: a show of care and attention to our guests, a cozy and friendly atomosphere, good music, homemade meals, and a wide choice bar. And, of course, we bake authentic and delicious pies!
