#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. In honor of the 70th Norilsk anniversary, citizens are invited to take part in the Hug the City! project and set a Russian record in the category of the most massive national unity by creating a living chain 3800 meters long.
The event will take place on Saturday, July 15, on Leninsky Prospekt. More than 6 000 people of all ages will take part, the mayor’s office said.
A delegation from the Russian Book of Records will come to Norilsk to register the record. Any resident or guest of Norilsk can become a member of the record – just come in white clothes and declare your participation.
As a reminder, in honor of the 70th anniversary of Norilsk, a race with Nornickel will be held at the Zapolyarnik stadium, singers Shaman, Elina Pan and Garik Sukachev will congratulate Norilsk residents on Metallurgist Day. In the History Spot section, we told how Norilsk celebrated the city’s five-year anniversary.
