Kick off the unofficial start of summer in style by seeing thousands of jewel-like tulips in bloom and enjoying classic 1960s poetry – from Bella Akhmadulina to Robert Rozhdestvensky – at St. Petersburg’s Tulip Festival. The celebration features colorful tulip beds, with over 200,000 mesmerizing flowers and 120 types of tulips, as well as unique compositions and bouquets that’ll turn Yelagin Island into a true realm of flowers. The event’s program will also include exhibitions, art installations, live music, poetic performances, workshops, and more.
