Dear friends, I invite you to spend the last day of the most delicious Russian holiday - Maslenitsa in Kolomenskoye Park. Concerts will be held in Kolomenskoye all this day, bliny (pancakes) can be tasted everywhere, and at 16:15 we will see an unforgettable traditional end of the holiday - the burning of the effigy of Maslenitsa which symbolizes the end of winter and the attraction of spring. We will meet near the ticket offices of the wooden Protected content (it is not far from Kashirskaya metro station), and after an hour of training in Nordic walking we will go to try pancakes and watch how the huge effigy of Maslenitsa burns. For participating you need comfortable sporty shoes preferably waterproof, and of course, nordic walking sticks))). They can be purchased at Sportmaster or Decathlon stores, but please, choose a telescopic option that is easy to fold for transport.
P.S. Not too much people know that Nordic walking is a real sport that allows you to improve all muscle groups and has virtually no contraindications. Nordic walking with special sticks solves the problem of back pain. But all this only works if you use the proper technique of the walk at your own pace (not so, as walk the majority of old people))).
So, I am ready to answer all your questions!
