Our heritage

The history of Skazka is inevitably linked to the visionary spirit of Nadezda Ternovskaya and Alexander Tsukanov, its founders. In 1991 they founded a company in Moscow specializing in the distribution of Russian handicrafts. The year 2005 saw the birth of Skazka store on Arbat street, a place of great choice of Russian matryoshka and hand painted boxes. Skazka’s  most famous items are manufactured at its own workshops by ingenious Russian artists. Yury Tsukanov joined Skazka team in 2013 and arranged a workshop for manufacturing wooden hand painted sculptures and eggs. An exclusive team of brilliant painters allows Skazka to offer an exceptional range of beautiful products.

Skazka today

Owners opened their dream store and named it Skazka. With their creativity and desire to gather all masterpieces made by famous Russian painters and jewellers they built magic House of Skazka based on the simple principles of exclusivity and quality. Skazka today is more than just the sum of its products - it`s a shopping experience that promises to surprise,maze and amuses customers by delivering extraordinary customer experience.
