Easter Celebration in St. Petersburg
Easter, or the Bright Resurrection of Christ as often called in Russia, is the main Orthodox holiday of the year. Easter is widely celebrated in Christian countries all around the world. This is a significant event for both the Catholics and the Orthodox. You have to note that Easter celebration date differs for the Catholics and the Orthodox because of the difference between the Julian and the Gregorian calendars. In 2019, the Catholic Easter falls on April 21, while the Orthodox one on April 28.
In St. Petersburg, Easter is traditionally celebrated on a grand scale. Solemn night services will be held on Easter days in numerous churches and cathedrals of the city. If you are willing to embrace the Christian culture, you can either attend one of the festive services, or simply visit a Catholic or an Orthodox cathedral to admire their elegant interior decorations. We certainly have to mention many Easter markets, folk festivals, holiday concerts and music festivals dedicated to the great event that will take place around this time.
