May 9: where to watch fireworks

9 Мая: где смотреть праздничный салют

Want to see the traditional fireworks on Victory Day? The editors of Woman’s Day has prepared a list of the most suitable sites, offering panoramic views of the fireworks.

This year for holiday fireworks scheduled 30 rounds of 76-millimeter guns ZIS-3 times of the great Patriotic war and firing units on the basis of “KAMAZ” with an electronic trigger system.

The duration of the fireworks – 10 minutes. Traditionally it will start at 22:00 and it will spend 449-th separate salute battalion.

Pyrotechnic sketches will provide 72 salute installations, which will be located in 16 locations throughout the city (the main place to start – Vorobyovy Gory and Poklonnaya Gora).

In the pursuit of the strongest impressions many anxious to get to Red square – and absolutely nothing! Hence the fireworks on May 9 will be visible not as good as it seems. In addition, the main square of Moscow, most likely, will be closed, so to view it is better to choose another place – for example, one of the bridges across the Moscow river.

By the way, the largest number of firing units traditionally will be placed on Poklonnaya hill. Another good place to watch fireworks, – the observation deck on the Sparrow hills, which offers a stunning view of the city at night. A good point for contemplation salute volleys can be found on the Crimean bridge, the Patriarchal bridge, the bridge “Bagration” or even from the Third transport ring near the “Moscow-city”.
