      From (USD) $374 Per Vehicle

      About this St. Petersburg tour

      Deeply rooted in Russia’s strong heritage are folk dancing and traditional songs, of which you can watch and listen to live at Nikolaevsky Palace. The city of St. Petersburg is well-known for playing a role in the entertainment scene, which is a mesmerizing blend of dance, theater, music and art. Each element is intertwined by the popular folkloric ensemble – an ensemble of professional artists who aim to leave a lasting impression on every member of the audience at this palace.

      Feel Yourself Russian is the name of the culturally-rich show that unveils a unique side of St. Petersburg. Considered the country’s most European city, Nikolaevsky Palace is a must to tick off the list in this metropolis, particularly for visitors on a time limit. Preserved by the state, all performances that commence inside this traditional mansion for merrymaking cannot be compared to any other in the world.

      Anyone who takes a seat to watch this folk show is guaranteed to feel involved in the larger-than-life performance. Lasting for 1.5 hours, the show will allow you to experience how a Grand Duke must feel, as you focus your attention on the leaping, strutting and promenading that originate from provinces around Russia. Designed with an impressive gala staircase, a colossal lobby and an entrance that was recently restored, Nikolaevsky Palace sits a 10-minute walk from The Hermitage.

      The Many Types of Russian Folk Dancing

      After visiting Nikolaevsky Palace to watch local performers grace the stage while embellished in jewels and wearing intricately designed costumes, you may be wondering just how many types of Russian folk dancing exists in the country. It’s difficult to define this, with the poetry, movements and liveliness of the show depicting its actual style. Round dances are as ancient as the Russian culture, although the original meaning has been lost throughout history. Some theaters will show squatting dances and game dances, with dancing contests being held in villages back in the olden times.
