Yarmarka a La Russ At Taste Of Wafi

Russian Culture Adds More Fun At Taste Of Wafi

Yarmarka means fair. Adding that to Taste Of Wafi, creates an even bigger fair. Yarmarka a La Russ adds more buzz to this 2-month long event which happens every Saturday in the Colonnade Area of Wafi Mall.

Displays of Russian delicacies, crafts and textiles are for everyone to check and experience as an addition to the Emirati cuisines and other local recipes. Among them are caviar, exquisitely smoked and preserved Russian shark, painstakingly handcrafted plates with designs that define its origin, etcetera.

But I reckon, Yarmarka wouldn’t be complete without its famous colorful hand-painted craft called Matryoshka doll or simply the Russian nesting doll.

“Matryoshka doll is a set of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside the other”, as wikipedia.org defines it. One can see how elaborate the paintings are starting from the larger outer doll down to the inner smallest.

And also, as what Russia is also known for which is dancing; 3 lovely ladies entertained the visitors with their traditional Russian Folk Dance.
