      Another ancient Russian town Veliky Novgorod will also host Pancake Week on February 25-26. Tourists can enjoy amazing atmosphere of the festival: folk performances, a carnival procession, wedding ceremonies, outdoor winter games and amusements, horse riding, a custom of burning a straw doll, concerts, fairs of handicrafts and arts, tasting of pancakes and hot drinks. Guests will be able to take part in a theatrical tour to the Middle Ages and to learn about rituals of the past.
