St-Petersburg city day

St. Petersburg will be celebrating its 310th anniversary this year and if you are anywhere remotely near the city centre on this day the festivities will be impossible to miss. As Peterburgers love their city with an almost maniacal fervor, you can expect the party to last all day and possibly into the next. During the day Nevsky Pr. is closed to traffic and citizens will take to the street en maze, clad in costumes, wigs or silly hats, clutching balloons, ice-creams or adult beverages as they march towards Palace square for free concerts, the Admiralty lawn for games, and the embankments to 'ooh' and 'aah' over the fireworks.
