Hello! We'll be in St. Petersburg early April next year, on Easter Week in fact.
Will the museums, palaces and shops be all closed on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Black Saturday and Easter Sunday itself? (Please bear with me, I'm not sure if that's how they are referred to by Russian Orthodox.)
Are there any traditional festivals/events that we should see during this time?
Thanks in advance for your feedback! Cheers :)
