SCARLET SAILS STORY
The holiday owes its origin to the USSR pioneers’ initiative, who wished to make the graduation day a very bright and special memory. For the first time a holiday for graduates of this scale was held in St. Petersburg in 1968. The city then still bore the name of Leningrad. The theme of the event was the eponymous story of Alexander Green, inspired by the magnificent adaptation. The story of the sublime Assol with her dreams and faith is reflected by “young adults” becoming not only deeply metaphorical, but also incredibly inspiring!
Since 2005, this event in the country life under the romantic name “Scarlet Sails” is a new countdown of its history, and now are constant participants of catalogues with the list of recommended tourism events in 20 European countries.
