On the last Sunday of July all sorts ships, submarines, aircraft, troops and amphibious vessels will be displayed in various ports of Russia making a festive parade.

In St. Petersburg about 10 vessels including warships and submarines will mark the celebration right in the city center. For those who has never seen a live submarine it might be quiet a show. You will be amazed just by its sheer size especially in that unusual surroundings - embarked near palaces and museums.
