Around 4,000 people gathered for the St. Patrick’s Day celebration in Moscow. Irish dancing groups, musicians and people interested in Celtic culture took part in the festive parade. It was a special occasion for all who own Irish wolfhounds.
They strolled down the city’s streets with their pets and even joined in a merry round dance to the loud public applause.St. Patrick is Ireland’s most famous patron saint. March 17 is believed to be the day of his death. The day is not celebrated in Ireland alone but all around the world. The festival dedicated to the Irish saint has been marked in Moscow since 1992.
