Carnival on nevsky 2009 Part 1

On 27th May 2009, the city of St. Petersburg, Russia celebrated its 306th birthday. This occasion was celebrated in the form of a carnival on the 30th and 31st of May. I was lucky to witness the great event and had no regrets of missing one days study. Here's a photo tour of the Nevsky street ........

....... We stepped out of Metro Nevsky Prospect to dive in the big crowd and walked towards Palace square .

On Nevsky, 5 concerts and 7 theatrical squares were organised . This one was hosted by the kids for the kids.

All over the street in front of Kazans Cathedral, posed a group of beautifully dressed artists with unique expressions. They stood undeterred by the hot summer sun.

'Devushki' enjoyed posing with the brilliant artists.
Kazan's Cathedral - as seen from the cafe inside the famous "House of Books " {Dom Knigi}.
Without doubt , Dom Knigi has the best collection of books I have ever seen under one roof!

The artists started walking towards the Palace square for the main ceremony ...
