Nikolaevsky Palace in St. Petersburg is home of a folk show.  It is a great way to end your tour day in St. Petersburg.  Traditional costumes make the folk performance exciting and interesting. The performances are approximately 1.5 hours with an intermission that includes campaign and snacks.  

The palace itself is designed in a classic style with a beautiful garden in the front that is always full of flowers.  When entering the palace, you will see a grand stairway, which is one of the best places for a photo opportunity.

The Nikolaevsky palace is classically styled and was built in the mid 1800's. Originally the palace served as the residence to the son of Czar Nicholas I.  His name was Grand Duke Nickoli.  At one point is was called the "Palace of Labor" due to the demands of Lenin, but has since had its name restored.
