Ireland celebrates Russian Maslenitsa

The Irish capital of Dublin holds the festival of Russian Maslenitsa - the carnival that takes place in Russia at the end of winter or in the beginning of spring to see the long winter off. Maslenitsa usually translates into English as the pancake week. The carnival, held by the Russian community of the city, is being held for the fourth time. The event attracts more and more Irish people every year. Last year, more than 7,000 people took part in the carnival.

In addition to traditional Maslenitsa ceremonies, organizers attract people's  attention to the Russian culture. In particular, negotiations are currently ongoing to organize exhibitions of the State Tretyakov Gallery in the Irish capital.

The celebrations will continue before March 14, as at the end of the week, on March 17, Ireland is celebrating its national holiday - St. Patrick's Day.
