Maslenitsa in Moscow

Maslenitsa, also known as a Pancake week, is an ancient sun-festival. After a long winter people are in a festive mood and happy to celebrate the end of the cold season. The celebration has been getting more popular in recent years and now there is a Maslenitsa event on practically every street in Moscow. More than 50 pancake stalls appeared in the city center. Public spaces are decorated with straw, ice sculptures, Russian toythemed carousels. There are also many traditional Russian performances everywhere in the streets!
