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.
