On the first weekend in September we celebrate the birth of the Russian capital. In 2019 Moscow will mark its 872 anniversary by many worth seeing events including open air concerts, sports contests and laser shows; and there will be plenty of food and drink stalls lining the streets. The city parks are also popular places to celebrate the occasion with many families choosing to enjoy a picnic. We suggest to use the subway to move around as many streets will be closed for traffic these days. Don't miss the time to book for a grand military bands festival Spasskaya Tower on Red Square! Best places to watch fireworks are Pathriarshy Bridge, Krymsky Bridge, Sparrow Hills.
