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.

  • Nothing remarkable. Just an honest way of selection of money. The type of the ancient tower. In the courtyard you can select yourself a coin for good luck. Inside tour of the teremu and a visit to an ice room. Tour niochjom. Ice room is a huge fridge with ice shapes. There get the crowd. Assistant Snegurochka, standing behind an ice bar in ice pile pours Mead. All this goes on 10 minutes. During this time the people have fotkajutsja ice shapes sitting on ice benches, consuming honey beer. That's all the fun. In General, you can safely skip.

  • Came here with a group of children (grade 6) in October 2016 onwards. To start children showed how coin coins when outdoors have become frozen, they invited us to the interactive tour. It was pretty crowded. And honestly, children are not particularly interesting. I think this is the place for younger children. The only thing they liked-ice room and a cocktail that they offered. By the way adults out there offering Mead. Interesting to see the dolls are handmade on 2 floor.

  • Be sure to visit with children. A great excursion and bread salt treated and everyone was amused by. Remained only pleasant impressions and excitement in children from communicating with the snow maiden and Grandfather Frost.
