In the very center of St. Petersburg, just in 10-munite walk from the Hermitage and 3-minute walk from the famous St. Isaak Cathedral one can see a beautiful palace - a real masterpiece of architecture of the second half of the XIXth century - Nikolaevsky Palace. Built by a gifted architect Andrey Schtakenshneider for Grand Duke Nikolay, a son of the Emperor Nikolay I, this place will fully meet your highest cultural expectations. Nowadays this Palace is in TOP-100 list of the most valuable and preserved by state monuments such as Kremlin and the Hermitage.

We are very glad to invite you to enjoy the folk show "Feel yourself Russian" and Tsar Meals at the Nikolaevsky Palace! We have a rich variety of offers for those who take interest in getting acquainted with Russian traditions.

Courteous cavalier and elegant ladies in crinolines will greet you on the stairs showing you the way and making you forget the time. Beautiful melodies of the past performed by a professional musical quartet will give you impression that you are simply traveling through centuries: and this is just a beginning!

Here in a cozy and nicely decorated Concert Hall of the Nikolaevsky Palace we will give you more than just an opportunity to see unforgettable folk show performance "Feel Yourself Russian": you will not only FEEL involved - you will BE really involved! During two hours of this dynamic colorful and picturesque show, you will hear tuneful folk songs - romantic, and full of life, watch sparkling dances of different provinces of Russia, - and learn that some items - such as saws, wooden spoons, and other traditional household appliances, - can also be used as musical instruments! And - oh, miracle! - suddenly you will find yourself right on the stage dancing like a real Russian, playing folk games and enjoying yourself!

The show consists of two parts (45 minutes each) and lasts for 1 hour 50 minutes including a break, during which the guests are offered some canapés with red caviar, cheese, ham, and also some fruit, champagne, red wine, vodka, juice and mineral water. During a break - live music is playing, beauties in crinolines are dancing for you - and candle light reflected in your glass gives your wine the color of a precious stone: What a nice thing to be a guest of Grand Duke!
