Balalaika is a Russian three-string pizzicato musical instrument with a slightly bended triangular body which has become Russia’s national musical symbol along with the accordion and bayan. Since time immemorial they have unfailingly accompanied people merrymaking and singing.

Today the balalaika is well-known worldwide. Many composers write music for it. Balalaika bands are popular across Europe and America. The postage stamp depicts a scene of Russian folk festivities with people singing, dancing and playing musical instruments.
