Before the New Year holidays, the center of the capital will be decorated with arches reminiscent of the facades of the city’s main theaters.

The specialists of the municipal economy complex installed support posts and metal frames on Tverskaya and Manezhnaya squares, in Gazetny lane, Novopushkinsky park and on Kuznetsky Most street.

The installation of light maps is now being completed.

At the same time, a test connection of the festive illumination is carried out in order to check the performance of the LEDs and, if necessary, correct the malfunctions.

Before the New Year holidays, the center of Moscow, as in previous years, will be decorated with eight luminous arches, reminiscent of the facades of the main metropolitan theaters.

The largest arch, 20 meters high and 62 meters long, installed on Tverskaya Square, symbolizes the Hermitage Theater with its recognizable columns. The arches in Gazetny and Kamergersky lanes resemble the nearby Moscow Art Theater named after A.P. Chekhov.

The luminous arches on Pushkinskaya Square and Novopushkinskiy Square symbolize the Russian Academic Youth Theater, and the arch on Manezhnaya Square is the facade of the Maly Theater.

As previously noted by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for housing and communal services and improvement Peter Biryukov, for the New Year holidays the city decorate more than four thousand decorative lighting designs. The installation is scheduled to be completed by mid-December.
