How to Watch the Victory Parade in Moscow

Russia will commemorate 70 years since the Allied victory over Nazi Germany this Saturday, May 9. The day will be marked by a huge parade through the center of Moscow, involving some 200 military vehicles along with 150 aircraft.


Where to Watch the Parade

Starting at 7 a.m., the public will be able to watch the procession from the side of the road as it proceeds from Khodinskoye Polye in northwestern Moscow down Leningradsky Prospekt and onto 1st Tverskaya-Yamskaya Ulitsa.

The parade will then pass along Tverskaya Ulitsa — the city's main thoroughfare — where the public will also be able to watch the military procession from the side of the road. The route from Pushkinskaya Ploshchad down to Manezhnaya Ploshchad will, however, be closed off to public access.

The procession will reach Red Square by about 10 a.m., though members of the public will not be granted access to the city's main square. The Kremlyovsky Naberezhnaya will also be closed off to the general public.

Helicopters and military planes will conduct a flyby at about 10:45 a.m. that will be visible from Leningradsky Prospekt, 1st Tverskaya-Yamskaya Ulitsa, Tverskaya Ulitsa and Rasushskaya Naberezhnaya.

How to Beat the Crowds

Tverskaya Ulitsa will be the most popular spot to watch the parade given its central location and close proximity to Red Square. In order to beat the crowds, arrive early in order to find yourself a good spot near the front.

An alternative option is to wait until the parade returns from Red Square. The procession will pass along Novy Arbat and the Garden Ring before heading back along Leningradsky Prospekt toward Khodinskoye Polye. You will be able to watch the procession from the side of the road.
