There are numerous events in the city as well as celebrating
My list of “must-see” holidays consists of attending the celebration of birthday of St. Petersburg, Shrovetide, Scarlet Sails, day of Navy, closing of Peterhof’s fountains, Christmas and New Year’s congratulations. Also I try to visit the local fests that are conducted in squares and big shopping malls – attendants are enjoying different contests, prizes and fun!
To keep a hand on the pulse I would recommend you translating the news from the news feed of my Russian group https://vk.com/gladtomeetyoucom as I try to repost the most interesting, exciting and attractive events in the city, the various lists of some good attractions! Also I am reposting some essential information about the changes of transport schedule and so forth. You can use the Google online services, my favorite platform – Promt or whatever you prefer.
Hope you have time to check out the information of the group at least once a week and you will discover St. Petersburg not only from the formal- stuck in time-museum point of view.
Here are the hashtags of the events, visited by me. You can also use them! #eventsgtmy #spbeventgtmy
