Maslenitsa at the Financial University

February 24, 2020, Maslenica started at the Financial University.

February 24, Maslenitsa Week started at the Financial University. Maslenitsa (also known as Crepe Week) is considered to be an ancient Slavic holiday, dedicated to the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Maslenitsa is the brightest and funniest festival among Russian holidays. 

Students of the Pre-University Training Faculty together with other students celebrated this holiday, trying delicious pancakes and other treats.

Many of the foreign students had never heard about this festival before, so they gladly took part in this Russian folk festival and received a lot of positive emotions.
