Some PR company from Moscow thought up of touring small towns and putting on silly paint-throwing events. On Friday, July 14th, this questionable form of entertainment comes to Kandalaksha. The activity starts at 6pm near the former Spolokhi Hotel, at Naberezhnaya 130. They wrote me and asked me to help in promoting this craziness. Here I am, done.
“The White Sea, now the only inland sea in Russia, is a semiclosed basin connected with the Barents Sea through Gorlo and Voronka. Voronka and the Mezen Bay are also assigned to the White Sea. The geographic bound ary of the White and Barents seas passes along the line Svyatoi Nos Cape – Kanin Nos Cape. Throughout the ages the White Sea have played an important role in economy of the North and North West of Russia. Many important events and stages in formation of Russia as a sea-power are associated with the White Sea”.
Historic reconstruction festival “Gandvik” is taking place on the Monastery Cape (just east off Kandalaksha) on July 2nd and 3rd starting at noon. The program includes visiting the Viking camp, single and group combat, recreation of a medieval fair, and show of historic boats.
