The holiday comes to us. Where and how to celebrate the New Year

They say how you will celebrate the New Year, so you will spend it. Therefore, we propose to celebrate the festive night in a fun, interesting and active way. In order not to sit all the coming 12 months at the table or in front of the TV, go to the skating rink, to Red Square or ... to a ball. We recommend that you remember about January 1 too! Instead of lying in bed, you can run a half marathon or the symbolic 2020 meters, and also start fulfilling your promises to yourself from the very first day of the year.
