Main Russia's New Year tree arrives in Kremlin
Russia’s main New Year symbol arrived at the Kremlin to decorate the Kremlin’s Cathedral Square for the New Year and Christmas holidays.
A logging vehicle made a stop near the Spassky Gate, and the driver handed special travelling papers to the guards and reported about the arrival of the valuable cargo.
The preeminent symbol of the New Year is about 90 years old and 25 meters tall. The diameter of the mammoth tree trunk is 6 meters, TASS reported.
The fir tree was cut at the Borodinskoye Forestry near Moscow on December 13.
On December 25, the tree will be unveiled and take center stage on traditional children's holiday shows in the Kremlin, set to delight thousands of children from all Russian regions.
