Getting to the Victory Parade is not as easy as it seems at first glance. If you are even an hour late, you simply will not be able to break through the crowd of spectators and miss the whole action.
Firstly, you need to decide why you want to get to the parade: to be present at the review of troops or to see a display of military equipment.
If you want to get to the parade in order to observe the review of the troops, you will need to know in advance the place where this part of the parade, which is the main one, will take place. This is usually the central city square.
Try to attend one of the parade rehearsals so that you can choose a place from where the best view of what is happening. Remember that if you stand near the site of the review of the troops, there will be a huge crowd of people with you, so it is better to choose a place that is at some distance from the place of events.
On the day of the parade, you will have to get up early - at five or six o'clock in the morning, so that the place that you have chosen in advance is not taken by someone else. When you arrive at a place, do not go anywhere, even for a few minutes, because on your return it may not be free.
If you want to see not the parade itself, but a review of military equipment, then it is better to know in advance the route along which the convoy will move and take a place somewhere along the way. When military equipment drives by you, you can see everything in the smallest detail, as well as take photographs as a souvenir.
About a month before the date of the Victory Day parade, you will need to call the city administration and find out if there will be access control for spectators. If the answer is yes, immediately ask what you need to do to get such a pass and get to the parade. Remember that the issuance of passes ends one to two weeks before the parade, and therefore try to resolve the issue with obtaining it in advance.
