Matryoshka is a worldwide known symbol of Russia and the most popular souvenir - a number of glazed wooden dolls of different size that can be put inside one another. Matryoshkas may be painted in various ways and look like a famous politician, a culture icon or an animation character. However, a classic Matryoshka doll looks like a woman dressed in a traditional Russian dress with colourful scarf and red cheeks.

This activity will be the perfect opportunity to spend a good time in the Northern Capital, learning more about Russian culture, and bringing home a unique souvenir made by yourself.


Your guide will pick you up at your hotel directly, and together, you'll go to the Matryoshka museum. You'll start the activity with a short visit of the museum, where you'll learn more about the most famous Russian souvenir.

After that, you'll start the main part of the activity: on this workshop a professional artist will show you the traditional art of Matryoshka painting and right after you will have a unique opportunity to make your personal customized Matryoshka. This amazing experience is not only a great way to spend time in St.Petersburg and immerse yourself into Russian culture, but also a wonderful chance to take a unique hand-made souvenir back home from Russia!
You will design your own Matryoshka, in the style of your choice.

After your workshop you will enjoy a typical Russian tea ceremony with herbal tea, biscuits and Russian sweets.
