Light shows are very popular all over the world and Moscow is not an exception. This autumn the festival called “The Circle of Light” will be held in the capital. The name is connected with the architectural structure of the city and is also interpreted as “unite and create”.
The program is full of various events like multimedia shows and installations of young artists and designers. All performances will start at 8 p.m. and last until 11 p.m.
The opening is going to take place 21 October on the Red Square where such sites as Saint Basil's Cathedral, GUM and the State History Museum will be illuminated.
Manezhnaya Square and Gorky Park are also used as festival areas with luminous garlands and floodlights. The entrance to all events is free of charge.
The government believes this festival will strengthen the image of Russian capital and will become a new stimulus for development of Moscow event-trigger tourism.
