117 streets, prospects and squares of the city are to be decorated for the New Year and Christmas.
St. Petersburg is starting preparations for the New Year and Christmas season. Several days ago, the city services started decorating the streets and squares with garlands and Christmas trees.
117 city streets, prospects and squares are to be decorated for the New Year with 3.5 thousand electric garlands and 61 artificial fir tree.
The city’s main Christmas tree is to be mounted in the Palace Square in mid-December. At present it is kept in a warehouse, which is getting empty quickly as the decorations are being taken out for installation.
Next year, the city residents will decide whether the Palace Square should be decorated with an artificial or a natural Christmas tree.
