Russian traditions in St.Petersburg
Last week we had a group in St.Petersburg from one of the leading German automobile companies which tried true Russian traditions.
The group had an an accommodation in Taleon Imperial Hotel located right in front of the Palace Square.
Welcome ceremony with bread and salt is one of the oldest Russian traditions and after arrival to the hotel a couple in traditional costumes accompanied by folk music offered bread and salt to all guests before they check in.
After visiting the fascinating Yusupov palace and seeing a performance in one of the coziest private theaters owned by Yusupov family the whole group went to Sadko restaurant. There should not be a visit without vodka tasting and red caviar eating. Everyone was very excited by Russian traditions.
The next day our guests from Germany wanted to have a city tour and we have chosen an unique transportation specially for them 3 white Hammer limousines really suited white snow on the streets. On the way to the Catharine’s Palace they viewed city sights and when they came to Pushkin which is the countryside of St. Petersburg they had house carriage riding.
As for other highlights the group was amused by performance in Mariinsky theatre famous of its ballet. Finally they visited the State Hermitage a museum of art and culture in Saint Petersburg and one of the largest and oldest museums in the world. We send them greetings from frosty Russia and welcome back!
