Festivals in Russland

Festivals in Russia:
1 January – New Year
7 January – Christmas
8 March – International Women’s Day
1 May – International Labour Day
9 May – Victory Day
12 June – Independence Day
4 November – Unity Day
(Unity Day was declared a holiday in 1997, as a replacement for the previous holiday, the Day of the October Revolution on 7 November. Unity Day is no longer an official holiday, but remains important to many Russians.)

Aside from these festivals, there are a number of public holidays in honour of the army, the navy, the air force, the fire service, the police etc. as well as a number of religious holidays, of which Easter is the most important. Throughout February there is much music and culture to be seen on many stages in Moscow. The most important festival in St. Petersburg is the ‘White Nights festival', which is a memorable occasion. During this period in June-July, it never gets completely dark at night. Throughout the city there are concerts, opera, ballet and classical music in all theatres in St. Petersburg. On the banks of the River Neva the nights become very busy when the bridges are opened at 2am. The Pop and Swing Jazz Festival also takes place during this period, which sees many open air concerts in the St. Peter and St. Paul Fortress. Both local and international bands perform at these concerts.
