Russian Navy Day 2012

This year all can witness even more celebratory events on this day.

On 29 July  a big marine and naval show will take place in the “Park of 300-years of St.Petersburg”. The tourists will see a mock fight between Sea Devils (Marine Spetsnaz – special elite force) and “international terrorists”. The park visitors will be able to see the marine's uniform and equipment as well as modern weapons. Those who are fond of the military style can try themselves in assembling and disassembling kalashnikovs, shooting in the shooting range, and throwing nives. 

Military vehicles will give a free ride to the tourists.

The main event will take place at 2 pm, with a mass landing of the marines, on top of their battle vehicles, at the river bank in the park.

Just for your information: The first Russian Navy was established by Peter the Great (Peter I) in October 1696.
