Folk Show at Nikholaevsky Palace

The naturally deep emotions of Russian folklore are certainly emphasized by the magnificent interior of this Palace. The “Feel Yourself Russian” show which is staged here is a unique opportunity to experience the history and spirit of Russia.

The show starts with the dance group called “Reverence,” beautiful ladies in crinolines and their elegant cavalier, accompanied by the “Classica” string quartet. It is followed by a folk instruments ensemble ”The Souvenir” in a performance of folk compositions, a Cossack song and dance company called “Maidan” which reproduces on stage Cossack songs and dances in their original form, and musicians of “ Naigrysh,” a folk instruments quartet performing versions of famous Russian tunes. In the intermission, refreshments include a buffet table of fruit, canapé, soft drinks, vodka, champagne and juice. But portions are really very small, so it is difficult to call it a buffet

The cost includes performance itself+ the cost of transfer + snacks during the intermission. They perform each day and the show starts at 7.00pm (with 20 minutes break during which they serve refreshments). Duration is about 1,5 hours.

Note please:  If you choose to take 7.00 pm performance after either our standard or All St.Petersburg Highlights Tour   there will be no time to return to the ship for changing
