August 2 – Airborne Troops Day (VDV), and August 12 – Airforce Day. On these days in every fountain of the country… Ok, not exactly on these days, just on August 2. People in striped shirts frolicking in fountains and boisterously celebrating their professional holiday are not the best walking companions in the city. On August 12 it is almost the same story, but without fountains. On these days if you are not a serviceman (for that matter, even if you are) it is better to stay away from the celebrants and avoid parks and squares where they participate in festive events. Just for safety’s sake.
