St. Petersburg favors those who somehow take life in their own hands, and do not stand still. Young and enthusiastic competitors might be first in the ranks of such people. In mid- June one of the biggest rowing tournaments in Russia held at an international level is organized on the Neva River.
An exciting fight on the water brings together various types of ships: singles, doubles, fours, eights, and others. According to the Olympic heritage, the regatta has four stages, and is judged by the recognized masters of sport.
The spectacular competition gathers a lot of onlookers on the river banks. Watching rowers is more comfortable from the area of the Peter and Paul Fortress where the Food Festival “National Cuisine - The Key to People’s Friendship” is held at the same time. At the festival one will be able to find more than 20 restaurants which amaze their guests with their recipes. Aside from this, there will be playgrounds for children, various national creative teams entertaining the guests, as well as food tastings, workshops from chefs and lots of other amusement activities.
