The Russian Ball, one of the important events of the Russian-speaking community in Tartu, was held in this Estonian city for the 22nd time. The ball brought together dozens of participants in costumes from previous eras and Russian folk costumes, guests danced classical ballroom dances and performed on stage, according to the Russian Ball page on Facebook.
The organizers noted the relevance of the ball, which not only took place offline during the pandemic, but also preserved its traditions and culture. The event was originally scheduled for April 24, but has been pushed back to September.
