'Feel Yourself Russian' at a folk show and buffet dinner in St Petersburg. Set amid the grandeur of 19th-century Nikolaevsky Palace, this entertaining performance offers an intro to Russian culture through traditional dance, song and colorful costumes. See the skillful leaps and acrobat feat of the Cossacks; then during intermission, dine on a buffet of red caviar canapes and Russian-style meats and cheeses. Upgrade with a pre-performance visit to the Vodka Museum for a sampling of the country's beloved national drink.
We had scheduling issues, first with the show, and then with the vodka tasting. Misha was wonderful and went out of his way to re-arrange and coordinate the events so we would not miss out. The show was fun and entertaining. Be prepared for lots of stomps, shouts, and whistles. We were smiling the whole time. Vodka and champagne upon arrival and again at intermission along with Russian canapes. It was touristy but guess what, we're tourists! The vodka museum is only one room but it contains the interesting history of vodka and drinking in Russia. We tasted 3 vodkas of different qualities and had some brown bread and fish snacks.
Many thanks to Misha for accommodating us and make sure we enjoyed the experience. We would definitely take a tour from him again next time we are in St Petersburg.
