You can observe weddings especially on Saturdays, if you happen to be at the monuments in Sovietskaya Street or in Theater Square where the newly-weds traditionally lay flowers to the foot of the monument.
It's a big tradition with us. Taking pictures of the couples is a part of the tradition, too.
When I was taking pictures of the couples they must have thought I was one of the hired photographers, so I didn't ask their permission, just got mixed with the line of photographers in front of the monument...
The newly-weds take a ride about the city before coming to their holiday table and come either to the monument to Lenin in Theater Square or to the Christianity Jubilee Monument in Sovietskaya Street.
You will see couples coming to the monuments to lay flowers there...
Weddings are widely celebrated in our city. You can recognize the newly-weds from afar, especially at our central monuments where they lay flowers and have their pictures taken before having a tour of the city...
You will be glad to see cars with huge wedding rings on top.
They are having a ride about the city on a Saturday morning before the official wedding lunch begins.
It is always exciting to see the newly-weds!
Let us wish them peace and happiness!
