January 30, 2018 00:21


Celebrations of Shrovetide will be held on February 18 in 22 parks in Moscow. Entertainment activities in most parks will be held from 13:00 to 19:00.

Participants of the festivities will be able to take part in free master classes, taste colorful pancakes, try their hand at pulling the rope or climb the traditional Pancake post.

In Lianozovo, Goncharovsky, Babushkinsky, Perovsky parks, as well as in the park of the 50th anniversary of the October Revolution, the Hermitage Garden, the Fili parks, Krasnaya Presnya and the Vorontsovo estate, the feast will end with the burning of the Shrovetide effigy.
Muscovites and tourists are generally welcome in such parks as Gorky Park, Zaryadye, Lilac Garden, Hermitage Garden, Tagansky and Izmailovsky Parks, Bauman Garden, Perovsky, Babushkinsky, Lianozovsky, Goncharovsky Parks, Park of the 50th anniversary of the October Revolution, "Sokolniki", "Fili", "Krasnaya Presnya", "Northern Tushino", "Tsaritsyno", "Kuzminki", "Krasnogvardeyskie ponds", Victory Park on Poklonnaya Hill and "Vorontsovo Estate."
Pancake week is an ancient Slav festival, which has survived to the present day from the time of paganism. It is dedicated to the end of winter and the arrival of warm days. Originally, Maslenitsa was associated with the spring solstice, but after the adoption of Christianity it was celebrated on the eve of Lent. The main dish - pancakes - symbolizes the spring sun.  
Shrovetide this year will be celebrated not only in the capital's parks, but also in the city center. From 9 to 18 February there will be a festival "Moscow Maslenitsa".
