Festival Journey into Christmas
December 16, 2015 13:55


For one month Moscow will be shrouded into the atmosphere of winter magic with millions of sparks and fairy tale shows. The city streets will sparkle with multi-colored little lamps, be filled with aroma of exhibition fair dishes and sounds of music. Mind-blowing art objects and well-known ballet performances right in the open air of Moscow streets, the country's largest ice-run, hundreds of festive shopping stalls and other New Year's gifts are waiting for natives and guests of Moscow.

The New Year and Christmas are special holidays, which can make even adults set aside their strict and solid look at reality and believe in miracles again. The festival Journey into Christmas will turn Moscow into a fairy tale land. As if touched with a magic wand, trees and houses will be lit with sparkles, streets will be filled with exhibitions and fairy tale characters that appear here and there. Even the most inveterate skeptics are bound to believe that New Year's time is the time of pleasant surprises, accomplishment of desires, and, above all a unique opportunity to feel the most sincere childish excitement again.

The festival Journey into Christmas 2014 went off with a bang and won wide acclaim. It is high time for a new Christmas adventure! Just take a walk along the Tverskaya and other Moscow streets, and you are prone to find yourself in a fairy tale. The New Year magic can't but transform the megalopolis. The spectacular festivals The Circle of Light and The Christmas Light will add to the fairy atmosphere. Flickering fountains, light tunnels and even a stellar sky, which does not mind clouds at all, will be arranged in Moscow.

Above all, laser shows will be stage on facades of Moscow buildings. Spectacular performances will be prepared by Italian, French and Spanish artists. Among them there is Valerio Festi, who decorated the facade of  Galeries Lafayette in Paris, and the author of the light show staged at the opening ceremony of the restored St. Peter's Cathedral in Vatican.

The main Christmas Tree will be set up in the Manezhnaya Square, and the space around will turn into an improvised map of Russia. Live ballet performances will be held in the Revolyutsii Square: The Nutcracker in the mornings and The Swan Lake in the evenings. Ice show performers will entertain walking public as well. Between the Manezhnaya Square and the Revolyutsii Square you will find The Island of Winter Games, which will boast Russia's biggest ice-run.

Naturally, it won't do without festive fair. When frozen and hungry during your winter walks and amusements, you will always have a chance to get warm with hot mulled wine, tea and cocoa, as well as regale on gingerbreads, house jam, honey, cookies, newly-baked pies and pancakes. Besides, indulge yourself and relatives with toys and souvenirs from around the world. Festive shopping stalls will be set up not only in the heart of Moscow, but all around the city. Altogether 428 of them are planned to be opened.

Journey into Christmas will last in Moscow from December 18 to January 10, with events running from 10 am to 9 pm.
Happy New Year and Merry Christmas!
