CITY EXCURSIONS ORGANISED BY BRIDGE of ARTS 2017 BRING FILM STARS AND ROSTOVITES TOGETHER

18 August 2017

III International Motivational Film and Sport Festival organizers and professional city guides will lead a series of excursions unveiling the city history. Free walking and bus tours are available in the film forum days on August 23-27. Along with Rostovites Russian and foreign film stars and festival guests will take part in excursion program events.

New excursion routes were worked out especially for BRIDGE of ARTS with emphasis on educational walking tours. So excursion «Dream City» acquainting comprehensively with history of Rostov filmmaking was presented during the II International Motivational Film and Sport Festival. In 2017 for the first time it will become a walking tour.

 «Stories Imprinted on Granite (с)» excursion will show numerous city monuments and sculptures. Citizens and guests will be exposed to the interesting world of Rostov-Papa during «One day of Chief Criminal Investigator’s Life» excursion. Strolling along Bolshaya Sadovaya street excursionists will «solve» big crimes committed in Rostov-on-Don in different years.

«Legendary Rostov» bus tour will allow sightseers to draw a line between historical facts and legends and get rid of stereotypical perception of the city. 

Those interested in rest and recreation in the city can join «Sybarite City» tour. The tour focuses on food and beverages, restaurants and diners and gives detailed description of leisure time of all city strata.

«Specially designed BRIDGE of ARTS excursions unite film stars, festival guests and citizens. Stars and audience will find themselves on one side of the screen, in one bus and in one street. None of the festivals can offer that experience of nonstandard openness», - Alexey Pavlovsky, one of tour developers, the festival PR director commented.

Most excursions start from Pokrovsky Square fountain and Alexander Khanzhonkov (Russian Cinema pioneer) Monument near «Marins Park Hotel». List of excursionists is completed an hour before the tour. Volunteers will assist at starting points.

The program will run through festival days from 23 to 27th August excluding the opening day, August 24.  August 26 will be the busiest day offering seven hours of four walking and four bus tours. Festival days will feature 18 excursions.
