Thousands will gather to watch the magic unfold on the banks of the Neva, surrounded by the panoramic views of the Hermitage and the Rostral Columns. 3000 tons of sand have been brought for the construction of sand sculptures on the beach.
To give the sculptures durability and preserve the original appearance until the end of the exhibition, they will be treated with a special solution that protects against weather phenomena. So there is no doubt that they will retain their original appearance until the end of the festival in mid-September.
