About us

Maslenitsa (Pancake week, in Russian "blini").

It is the only purely Russian Holiday that dates back to the pagan times. On this week churches jingles with bells.
The people are letting the long-annoying winter out and the long-awaited spring in.
The essential element, of course, is blini (pancakes). Blin is the symbol of sun. It is as round, gold and warm as the sun. We serve them hot with either butter, or sour cream, or caviar, or mushrooms, or sturgeon - to any taste.
The last day of Maslenitsa is called Forgiveness Day. All ask one another for forgiveness in order to redeem themselves from their sins before the Great Lent. They bow to one another and are said, "God will forgive you". The Blini week is over and so is the winter giving way to the spring.

ou will see brightness of Russian folklore, to participate in Russian ancient ceremonies and entertainments, to try delicious Russian food, to see and get for memory original and traditional products of masters of national crafts and artists, to see Ethnographic action in the country house - "the Repayment of the bride".
