Traditional Welcome Ceremony

Russian hospitality is well known all over the world, which is why the Welcome Ceremony is the first thing you have to enjoy when arriving to Moscow.  

The traditional Welcome Ceremony of “bread and salt” is an ancient Russian tradition of greeting guests. Young girls dressed in traditional Russian costumes offer to taste “Karavy” – a bread with salt in it, as well as Russian vodka. This ceremony can take place at the airport, hotel, restaurant or even theatre.
