What is real Russian Folk

Russia in Fairy Tales is a perfect example of traditional Russian folk. It has a unique set of features:

  1. Multicultural mix. If you look at the songs content, it is focused on three different social groups: peasants, gypsies and Cossacks. All three categories played an important part of forming Russian culture.
  2. Russian Folk is either about war or harvest. Interestingly, not many songs are focused on the tragedy of love or social inequality
  3. Union with nature. The majority of Russian songs cover the beauty of Russian nature and its perfection.

Please note, you can book Cossacks show «Bagatitsa» as well. This show is focused entirely on the colture of Southern Borders of Russia.
