Cathedral Square of the Kremlin
The Formal Infantry and Horse Guard Mounting Parade of the Presidential Regiment takes place around 20 times from April to October.
A centuries-old tradition of the ceremonial changing of the guard revives in Kremlin each Saturday through the Russian warm season. The ceremony involving infantry and cavalry was first started by Peter the Great. Nowadays, Presidential Regiment troops of the Special Guard, the Cavalry Escort of Honor and the Presidential Orchestra take part in the changing of the guard. The ceremony is a mix of intricate maneuvers by the infantrymen and cavalrymen, special arms’ drills and musical performances.
