Snowmaiden's Palace, Kostroma
(2.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Get into the holiday spirit any time of year at Snowmaiden's Palace. The Snowmaiden, or Snegurochka, represents one of the most beloved Russian fairytale characters. The maiden is the granddaughter of Ded Moroz (the Russian Santa Claus) and helps him bring gifts to children every Christmas. Her charming wooden palace in Kostroma welcomes both kids and adults, offering various entertaining and educational programs. Meet the Snowmaiden herself, learn about Russian fairytales and traditions, try to learn some nursery rhymes, and shop for toys and souvenirs. One of the highlights of the palace is the Ice Room, where you can have cold drinks and snacks. The palace is not very large, so even small kids can enjoy it without too much walking. However, be aware that it can get crowded. By using our Kostroma vacation builder, you can arrange your visit to Snowmaiden's Palace and other attractions in Kostroma.

  • To get there on holidays, you need to be logged in advance via email. Approximately one month before the visit to Kostroma. To go away from public transport. And so in General, we enjoyed the entire program, including a visit to the ice room!

  • In a sight-seeing tour in Kostroma visiting House Luga-mandatory part of the program. In dry matter, if you don't pay attention to the little things, like cramped in a small house with a group of 40 people, in an interactive "pritjanutyj behind the ears" and pay a visit to the ice rooms-all OK! Greeted us with bread, sprinkled with black salt. Told about the Opposition. At the end of the collective photo group. Most of all I liked the gift corner. Conclusion: as a separate object hits, most likely cause frustration, and the tour round looked quite harmoniously.

  • Rode in an excellent mood. But in the end, totally disappointed! All interactive program took only 30 minutes from start to finish. In my opinion, this is not enough for its price. Ice room-a further 10-15 mins per charge, is also not worth your money. AND EVERYTHING! Child 6 years stated that the snow maiden is not real. Very sorry for the wasted time and money! Went to Kostroma to supporters and held her just 45 minutes. Oh and about themselves terema marked some more. I DO NOT ADVISE!
