Petersburg invites you to look at the «Wonder of Light»

08 October 2019

Annual festival under a label «Wonder of Light» will be held in St. Petersburg. Within two days, on the 2nd and 3rd of November, a magical garden full of real miracles will come to life on the Palace Square.

Guests and residents of the city will see giant light flowers, trees and fantastic plants in the very heart of St. Petersburg. At the festival, 3D-mapping shows and light installations will be combined into a single digital space. A specially designed application with augmented reality (AR) technology will help not to get lost in the impromptu garden. The application will become a real guide for garden researchers and will help to reveal secrets on the other side of reality.

On the facade of the General Staff building, 3D show will unfold - an adventure quest that will lead viewers through uncharted worlds. Moving between locations in search of a lost light source, everyone will experience an exciting journey full of magic and enchantment.

“In the first days of November, the festival of light will be a real celebratory event, which will become a real present for citizens and guests of St.Petersburg” - says Evgeniy Pankevich, Chairman of the Committee for Tourism Development.

In 2018, about 900 thousand people attended the Festival of Light.

Recall that the event will be held on November 2 and 3 from 19:00 to 22:00 on Palace Square. Free admission. 6+
