Event description
Three – two – one - gooooooooo!

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome on board of the time-lift!

This summer we're inviting you to a magic journey through the time.

Our journey starts at the 18th century – time of kings and emperors, gorgeous palaces and fancy-dress balls, mysteries and legends, where the spirit of Peter the Great is still wandering along the granite embankments of the Neva river.

Attention, stand clear to the doors, our time-lift moves on! Next stop - USSR. Dear travellers, welcome to Leningrad - the 1st Congress of AEGEE party of the Soviet Union is about to start! Be ready to get up accompanied by the sounds of Soviet music and make special morning exercises like million Soviet people did it following the instructions of Soviet Radio =) And prepare all your energy to hang out the whole night at rock-n-roll party “Back to USSR”!

Oh! Did you feel this shake? Don’t worry, it’s just because our time-lift clung to the last wagon of subway train taking us to the modern megapolis. St.-Petersburg of the 21st century will daze you with myriads of lights, embrace you with crowds of people flooding the Nevskiy Prospect, entangle you with fata morganas of the white nights.

Daring travellers, hurry up to jump in our time-lift before we push “START” button!
