On May holidays St. Petersburg residents will taste smelt

06 April 2021

On May 15, the Smelt festival will begin in Novaya Ladoga located 128 km from the Northern Capital, or about an hour and a half away by car.

The festival will be attended not only by gourmets, lovers of St. Petersburg cuisine, but also by fishermen who will compete in the production of this fish.

A real fish fair will open in the makeshift fishing village – smelt lovers will have a great opportunity to stock up on fish for the future.

Anyone who wants to learn how to cook smelt properly will be able to learn this skill at various master classes. Visitors will be entertained by a fair of traditional crafts accompanied by incendiary melodies and rhythms.

The long-awaited smelt festival will end on May 16.

By the way, two years ago when the holiday in Novaya Ladoga was held for the first time, more than 10 thousand guests had participated in it. This time, the organizers are expecting a much larger number of visitors.
