Russians started celebrating St Valentine’s Day not so long ago; nonetheless, you can feel the atmosphere getting more romantic from day to day. Shops advertise their St Valentine’s collections, there are romcoms in the cinemas and the city lights up with colours of love. Although it is a romantic holiday, we cannot deny the fact that it requires preparations, as we need to think about the presents and possible ways of spending this day. To make it a bit easier we have created a list of gifts and events for you and the people you love.

The movie tells a story of four sisters that go through the things that a familiar to everyone: first love, disappointments of life and the search of yourself. Click the link below to buy tickets!

Music and paintings can wake our imagination up and make us feel something unusual. The ringing of the canvas is a project that combines music and art. On the 15th of February you will be able to enjoy the works of Van Gogh accompanied by classical music. Maybe it is the key to a truly romantic atmosphere?

Tickets

 

For those who love something more energetic and extravagant we suggest going to Fashion Freak Show. Jean Paul Goutier is a prominent French designer that has come up with this mix of a musical and a fashion show. It is going to be unforgettable.
