Moscow city’s authorities have sent a troupe of Russian artists to Hanoi for most of September. During the stay, the artists have performed in Hanoi’s pedestrian streets from Friday to Monday every week at 9-10.30 a.m. and 8-9.30 p.m.
Their shows featuring Russian culture and arts always attract crowds, particularly in the evening.
Nguyen Thi Huong in Dong Da District said that Russian shows such as bubble blows and stilt walking impressed him the most among activities displayed on Hanoi’s pedestrian streets.

Artist Pavel said that this was the first time he has visited Vietnam and was really surprised by the public reaction. The response, especially from children, encouraged the artists very much. He hoped that he would have more chances to perform in Vietnam in the future.
Hanoi on September 1st started piloting walking streets in the vicinity of Hoan Kiem Lake.
The scheme will run until the Lunar New Year in 2017 with traffic closed from 7 p.m. Friday to midnight Sunday./.
