Maslenitsa Celebration

March 19, 2019

Students studying Russian in the LV and V journeyed to Harrow School to celebrate the Russian celebration of Maslenitsa. This is an Eastern Slavic holiday, which takes place a week before the fasting of Great Lent and is the Eastern equivalent of Shrove Tuesday. The trip was a huge success with interesting and challenging Russian language competitions and delicious, traditional Maslenitsa food.
