#4 of 14 in Museums in Kostroma
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. Take a look at our Kostroma trip itinerary planning site to schedule your visit to Snowmaiden's Palace and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

    Unfortunately, we came in the evening and inside, but have not got around was so great that the child did not want to leave. Large wooden swing, giant (also wooden) spoon beaten multi-colored clogs, bells, "well" with "River" scoreboard with readout of time before this new year, and, of course, create a little genteel Terem itself fantastic atmosphere.

    It's amazing how everything is fabulous. Interesting for both children and adults. If children are not with you you can surprise their present Snegurochnym gift. Little girl or kokoshnikom as the snow maiden, bring a lollipop from the snow maiden. I was lucky enough to be here in the spring, but very desirable and winter come. A small Exposition, but call "memory".
