In the first half of June an international hot air ballon cup takes place in Velikie Luki. Colourful ballons fly across the sky of the town and the nearby area from sunrise to sunset for the whole week. This is the most famous and most loved event by all the local people.
The event is picturesque and unique for this part of Russia. The atmosphere of a holiday and good mood is spread in the air, people are even more joyful and hospitable than ever.
The ballons can be seen in the air in the noon, in early morning and sunset, great views, liked by photographers of any kind. Pilots offer the service of "making flights in a ballon" for tourists for the price about 100 Euro per person. Great experience to have a hot air balloon flight at least once in a life. Locals say: "If you were in Velikiye Luki and didn't try a ballon flying above the old fortress, you wasted your time".
