On the trails of Moscow's 865th anniversary

On the occasion of Moscow's anniversary more than 600 events took place across the city last weekend, including music festivals, performances, cooking and handicraft events, activities for children and fireworks displays.

Several thousand people gathered in Rostokino northeast of Moscow to release thousands of Chinese lanterns into the sky above Moscow. Watch this video and see how the lanterns decorated the evening sky of Moscow.

This performance as well as the retro carnaval, the pop-up culture festival, Cosmogonia vertical dance show and the great firework in the end have made this City Day unforgettable.
