When it comes to uncovering the ‘Russian soul’, there is so much more than meets the eye. Most travellers only catch a glimpse of its rich traditions and age-old culture. However, for true immersion, you’ll have to visit Russia during the festive seasons.
The best of Russian festivals and events celebrate Russia’s rich culture, history and religion. Coupled with a vibrant mix of music, film, food, and dancing, you are guaranteed to create long-lasting memories. Experience authentic local customs on full display, meet artisans and craftsmen, and taste the best of Russian cuisine.
With over 1,500 festivals held annually across Russia, each is filled with exciting, and at times bizarre, customs and traditions. For example, The Reindeer Herder’s festival and the “Pole of Cold” festival still retain ancient pagan rituals almost lost to the clamour of the modern world. What’s more is that while New Year’s and Christmas are well-known festivals celebrated all across the globe, the manner of celebration in Russia is strikingly unique and not something to be missed.
Most tourists come to Russia for a fleeting taste of its rich traditions and age-old culture. But to truly immerse yourself in the spirit of Russian culture, consider visiting the country during one of the Russian festivals or holidays.READ MORE
