Russian Cossacks Folk Dance is one of the most authentic Russian shows in St Petersburg. First the show was established for ordinary working class people who enjoyed cossacks folk dance and after a long day at work they went to see cheerful dancers and enjoyed the beauty of traditional Russian songs. This show is a true "non-touristic" local folk experience.

Originally the show was designed for peasants and workers in the XIX century and established in "Panina's mansion" - a local town concert hall. In time the show and the mansion itself were getting more and more popular. These days many people go see the Cossacks show just to bring back memories of the past - simple, colorful and sparkling songs with vibrant energy and endless fun.
You will see real Russian Cossacks in traditional costumes with rich, powerful vocals. The show consists of two parts and a champaign + caviar complement. The most memorable part will probably be the interactive dance when cossacks jump off the stage and engage the audience in one big circle dancing and singing together.
It gives a very good contrast to formal restaurant dinners or classic museum tours. It is very easy to get to the mansion and if you need, book a hotel pickup and we will escort you.
