Navy Day Celebration in Russia
Have you ever seen submarines in the center of a megapolis? You have an opportunity - just visit St. Petersburg on July, 28.
St. Petersburg along with other great ports in Russia will celebrate the marine legacy of the country on the last Sunday of July.
The Russian fleet is comparatively young - just about 300 years old. Peter I transformed Russia into one of the biggest seafaring countries in the world. The holiday, however, was not celebrated until the 20th century.
This year St. Petersburg will see a traditional parade of the Navy- one of the most unusual and spectacular sights even for the native citizens. Decorated warships, a submarine, artillery boats will pass along the Neva River - right next to the Hermitage and other attractions. The event also includes a parade of naval aviation, a concert on the Palace Square and fireworks.
If you happen to be in St. Petersburg during this celebration, just take a walk to the embankment - the parade is truly remarkable. But do not regret if you miss it - #russkieprostori DMC will organize any kind of incentive program for you, including military style.
