The holiday history:

Pancake week (Masliana, Maslenitsa) in Rus symbolized the coming of spring and the awakening of nature. Ancient Slavs celebrated the "winter send-off" and the beginning of spring and spring farming. On this day the Sun, which brought the warmth and awakened the nature was honored, that`s why the sacrificial bread looking like this celestial body- a pancake was prepared.

First mentions about Pancake week (Masliana, Maslenitsa) in our ancestor`s calendars are dated with IV c. A.C. (by the way, in the calendars of the v. Romashki of the Kievan region and the v. Lepesovka – modern Hmelnitskiy region). The holiday was actively celebrated not only in the pagan period but also after the introduction of Christianity by prince Volodymyr in the year 988.

The celebration program:

The program will start with the solemn greeting of the Kievan prince Volodymyr. And in the same way as a thousand years ago during the prince`s greeting ceremony all the people will be generously treated with pancakes, bagels and other delicatessen. The Ancient Kiev guests are awaited by thrilling performances of the Princely troops: horse and pedestrian fights, the demonstration of the possession of all types of the medieval weapon and also horse tricks.
