St. Petersburg will celebrate Dostoevsky Day
A Committee of Culture of St. Petersburg took the initiative to introduce a new festival in the city - Dostoyevsky Day. Dostoevsky - a "global brand" and its use - "correct history". It may be a good start for cultural events in St. Petersburg.
They also plan to organize a ballet festival, which is scheduled for 2010. Saint Petersburg government is also going to "reformat" the City Day into a "major event". The City Day of Saint Petersburg is celebrated on 27th of May. City Day is a birthday of a city. Moscow's city day, for example, is in the begining of September. They want to redo this holiday in St Pete. It will be a week long holiday. It used to be a pretty quiet and calm holiday with no major events going on.
