There are seven projects for St. Petersburg Tercentenary celebrations according to the international press-center “300 Years of St. Petersburg”.

Project number 1 is Solemn Ceremony of Celebrations’ Decade Opening. The project was developed by the principal painter of Big Drama Theatre – Eduard Kochergin – who tried to maximally account for specialties of St. Petersburg both 100 years and 200 years celebrations. By tradition – church representatives will bring from the House of Peter the Great the icon of Our Savior, the one that was accompanying the tsar during Poltavskaya Fight. The icon will go in a special vessel along by the Neva river, the Peter-and-Paul’s fortress will meet the icon with a salutation.
