Saint Petersburg summer can hardly be imagined now without a sand sculpture festival on the beach of the Sts Peter and Paul Fortress.
This year it opened on May 25 and will run till mid-September.
In past years, visitors to the Sand Sculpture Festival could see a six-meter sand copy of St. Basil’s Cathedral and a five-meter bust of Peter the Great. This year you will find mystical creatures and the secrets of disappeared civilizations unfolding here.
Fairy-tale characters, dinosaurs, gnomes, microworld inhabitants and other amazing sculptures are placed around the central composition, which is towering over the entire site. Find yourself in a fairytale land under the protection of a huge dragon.
Where: Sts Peter and Paul Fortress next to the Gorkovskaya and Sportivnaya metro stations, Saint Petersburg.
When: from May 25 to September 8, 2019
Open hours: from 10 am to 10 pm.
