This weekend, Moscow will become a pedestrian’s dream—car traffic will be closed due to several major street festivals, including a retro car exhibition and a bicycle race.
This year, the grand literary event is taking place for the eighth time. It brings together writers, poets, publishers, librarians, musicians, and, of course, tens of thousands of readers. Two speakers from HSE University are delivering lectures on urban studies. The Fish Week festival on Manezhnaya offers snacks near the book festival.
The first month of summer may have already passed, but there is still time to discover and enjoy Moscow’s varied cultural programme. This year, public spaces and parks have prepared a flower festival, a brass band festival, open theatre rehearsals, and a Russian cuisine festival.
Since Russia’s main winter holiday is the New Year and Orthodox Christmas is celebrated on January 7, the holiday season in Moscow has only just started. The city is now continuing its tradition of street events with the ‘Journey to Christmas’ festival.
Spectacular fireworks, military music festival, and even unexpected activities like wakeboarding and flowriding with a view of the Kremlin.
This summer street festival in downtown Moscow brings together two major delights of the sunny season – flowers and desserts. The Flower Jam Festival is taking place until August 6, 2017.
