Festival of Tulips: Festivals, Saint-Petersburg

19 and 20 May will see the ceremonial opening of the Tulip festival on Elagin Island which can be seen for a couple of weeks afterwards.

This year visitors can enjoy three varieties of rare black tulips, bright parrot tulips with eye-catching indented undulating petals and all kinds of double tulips with varied colour schemes (from pastel shades to rich bright colours). The theme of this year’s festival is ballet (2018 has been designated as the Year of Ballet). Inspired by the aesthetic of Diaghilev’s celebrated “Russian Seasons” the park’s gardeners have attempted to convey in their planning of the flowerbeds the motifs of sketches by Bakst, Benois, Rerikh, Golovin and Korovin.
