Rehearsals of Victory Day military parade moscow eventsRehearsals of Victory Day military parade
29 April, 4 May
Throughout Moscow

Moscow visitors will be able to see military hardware rolling across Moscow’s streets during the rehearsals of Victory Day parade.

read more...
 
Unfortunately, the parade is an invitation-only event. Tickets cannot be bought; they are distributed among veterans and their carers, civil servants, senior military officers, and members of the media. However, for those who still want to witness the Russian military hardware on the move, three rehearsals of Victory Day parade are scheduled to take place in April and May. In 2018, the general rehearsal of the parade was scheduled for May 6. Military machines and marching servicemen will move along Tverskaya Street and further to Red Square, where the rehearsal takes place being part of large-scale preparations for the Victory Day parade.

The best point to observe the military vehicles is the part of Tverskaya Street enclosed between two squares – Pushkinskaya y Okhotniy Ryad. Usually, at around 19:00-19.30 all the vehicles line up along Trerskaya.

Aviation is well visible from many points: at 10.45 – 11.00, airplanes and helicopters fly over Leningradsky Avenue, 1st Tverskaya street, Tverskaya Street, Red Square, and Raushskaya embankment. Generally, airplanes fly over the even-numbered side of the streets, so the best observation point is on the odd-numbered side. A great place to see and take photo of the aircraft on the background of St. Basil’s Cathedral is Raushskaya embankment, because during rehearsals of Victory Day parade normally it isn’t closed.

The infantry never comes to Red Square in full force. Usually squads come to the square from different directions: Kotelnicheskaya Embankment, Ilyinka Street, and Varvarka Street. However, these streets and the adjoin ones will be closed. Perhaps something might be seen from the Grand Ustinsky Bridge.
Remember, on these days some public transport routes may be changed.

Routes:
1. Nizhniye Mnevniki Street – Narodnogo Opolcheniya Street – Mnevniki Street – Zvenigorodskoe Highway – Krasnaya Presnya Street – Barrikadnaya Street – Sadovaya-Kudrinskaya Street – Bolshaya Sadovaya Street – Triumph Square – Tverskaya Street – Kremlevskaya Embankment – Borovitskaya Square – Mokhovaya Street – Vozdvizhenka Street – Novy Arbat Street – Novinsky Boulevard – Sadovaya-Kudrinskaya Street – Tverskaya Street;
