Festive holiday light installation "Meeting Maslennitsa" in front of the Triumphal Gate on Kutuzovsky avenue with cheerful Russian people dancing near horses (Russian Troyka) and image of the sun in early morning.

Maslenitsa (or pancake week) is considered an ancient Russian folk holiday. In fact, this is the farewell to the winter and the solemn meeting of the beautiful spring. Originally its celebration in Russia was associated with the glorification of the Sun God Yarila.
