By Friday, a stage and several art pavilions will be built near the Hermitage. Each is dedicated to its own topic. On the site “Petersburg – the capital of design”, the citizens are offered to model the festival space to their taste using 3D technologies. A special system will display projections on the background-silhouette of the St. Petersburg tram. In the “Capital of Water Tourism” tent, adults and children, standing on a real SUP board in the multimedia room, will be able to move as if on “water” and build a path along rivers and canals. The main entertainment at the Sports Capital point is playing interactive tic-tac-toe with a ball and riding a bicycle, depending on the acceleration speed of which the image on the screens changes.

For children, a separate pavilion with a magical flower slide and light installations that react to touch will work on the square. Connoisseurs of purely Petersburg aesthetics will certainly appreciate the tent, inside which you feel like in a courtyard-well.

The official start of the autumn-winter season will be given at 20.20 on September 23. It is at this time that the light and music program will begin and the fountain, specially installed on Palace Square, will “dance”. The same evening DJ Naletov, Dizzy Dutch Duck, virtuoso violinists Igor Zalivalov and Sofia Bridge will perform in front of the audience together with the Is Violin Rock Collective.
