Several hundred albums

Now we here again to watch the city anniversary celebration
Petrozavodsk was founded by Peter the I in 1703, just like St Petersburg.
This weekend, on 28th and 29th of June, it celebrated its 300th
(The best in the city, as far as I know)
There's an emblem of Petrozavodsk 300th
A sculpture in a "modern art" style :)
Was fixed up recently.
Lenin Prospect is the Petrazavodsk main
There are a lot of people there
A part of them are going to the quay, another part are returning from it
Onezhskoe lake quay
The main celebration is here
It's interesting that in Petrozavodsk
even in bad weather, the sky over the lake is often clear.

Some people celebrate, some people have
(The boat is called stardust)
A huge seagull and a small girl
