KURSK, September 25 (Itar-Tass) — Kursk, a City of Military Glory, this Tuesday begins to mark its 980th anniversary.
The jubilee will be celebrated for five days, each devoted to some theme. The first is the Ancient Orthodox Faith City. The main event will be a religious procession with the "Sign" Icon of the Mother of God, which is specially brought here by a Russia Orthodox Church delegation.
Delegations from more than 20 Russian cities and abroad have arrived for the celebration. There are guests from Germany, Poland, Serbia, Abkhazia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and other countries.
The day is special, administration head Nikolai Ovcharov said in his congratulation. The miraculous icon "Sign", with which ancient Kursk's history is inseparably connected, is on the Kursk land now, he noted.
Concerts, festivals, festive processions and opening ceremonies are planned for the days in the city. Ceremonies will be held to open a kindergarten for 140 children and a sport complex with a concert hall for 3,000 people.
The fourth day will be devoted to Kursk's military glory. It will be opened with a parade of members of patriotic clubs. An international folk festival is planned for the day, and a patriotic song festival will be held in the evening. Wreaths and flowers will be laid at the memorials to Soviet soldiers.
Guests from the British city of Chichester brought art works of children to Kursk for the international exhibition of children's drawings "Art without Borders" that will open at School 27. A tele conference will be also organized at the exhibition.
