What to Expect
Visit: ULKOtours, St. Petersburg, Northwestern District

Feel the spirit of Russia in this beautiful folkloric show that will not leave a single person unaffected!
If you are lucky, you might even be picked up to join the dancers on stage!
The folk show is represented with 3 professional folk groups: 
1) “Peters Quartet” vocal quartet. Classical performance of folk songs, lyrical romances and Russian Orthodox hymns.
2) "Maidan" Cossack song-and-dance group. The name of the group gets its origin from the place where all Cossacks used to assemble in older times and where decisions were made "by the whole world". The group skilfully reproduces Cossack songs and dances in their original form.
3) «Stars of St.Petersburg» dance group. The dancers have graduated from leading schools of choreography in Russia. The repertoire covers lyrical dances of the Russian North, energetic dances of the Cossacks from the Don and Voronezh, dancing miniatures of the Urals and Siberia with their subtle humour. Spectators of all ages and tastes will be able to appreciate not only the ability of the performers to bring Russian national colour to the stage, but also their highest skills, complexity of acrobatic feats and breath-taking leaps.
Duration of the show: 1.5 hours (two parts of 45 minutes)
Drinks and light snacks are served during the interval. Try a bite of canapés with red caviar, ham, Russian Salami, various cheeses; enjoy a shot of Russian vodka, a glass of champagne, red wine, or stay healthy with mineral water, juice and assorted soft drinks.

A nice evening out. You are meet with a glass of champagne horderves in hallway and staircase. The show has traditional Russian costume and lively music. During the intermission you will find more champagne and several tables selling souveniers. The show was very entertaining!
