Cultural Programme

Breathtaking exclusive cultural programme is a hallmark of the Forum!


On June 18 we invite you to the Mariinsky theatre for the Gala Concert featuring performances by stars of the opera and ballet companies. The audience will admire symphonic fragments and arias from famous Russian composers’ operas as well as performance by Ulyana Lopatkina, Prima ballerina at the Mariinsky theatre and world ballet star.

The performance will be followed by the Russian buffet where guests will be offered the most popular specialties from Russian cuisine!

On June 19 we suggest you make an unforgettable evening boat trip along channels and rivers of St. Petersburg. During this tour one could not only admire the city views, but also visit the main museums of the city. Another compliment for our participants will be an exclusive evening opening of the State Hermitage with unique collections and gorgeous interiors of one of the most splendid world museums.

On June 20 we invite you to visit The Universe of Water museum complex, comprising three displays: The Water World of St. Petersburg, The Underground World of St. Petersburg, and The Universe of Water.

The culmination of the cultural programme 2014 will be The Scarlet Sails show, the world famous massive event celebrating the end of the school year. The celebration will take place on the night of the 20th / 21st of June. The symbol of the festival is, of course, a boat with scarlet sails, an image from the popular book “Scarlet Sails” by Alexander Grin incarnating youth, hope and the power of dreams. “Scarlet Sails” is the only Russian festival listed in the world’s event tourism catalogue and is a recommended to visit event in almost 20 European Union countries. During the show the guests of the will enjoy the Forum’s gala dinner taking place in the very heart of St. Petersburg — premises of the Peter and Paul Fortress.

Also on we suggest our delegates tours to famous Russian Tsars’ residences — Catherine’s Palace and Peterhof, making a city tour and a tour across the mysterious St. Petersburg, visiting the museum of contemporary art at night and the Children’s School of Ballet, and many other excursions.

Now it’s time to make a wish during the famous St. Petersburg’s White Nights!
