The main Christmas tree of Ukraine 2019 will be installed on St. Sophia square in Kiev. This year it may be artificial, and its design will be the Northern lights.
This was announced by the organizer of the new year celebrations in Kiev last years and the founder of the project “Folk Ukraine” Igor Dobrutsky, reports “Today”.
Now the organizers are considering three options for what will be a beautiful new year.
The tree may be artificial, type-setting – from small branches, as we did before. Or alive, which we, according to tradition, brought from the forest service in Ivano-Frankivsk. While the decision has not yet been taken. I think by December 8, decide. December 10 is the critical date. To this day the Christmas tree should stand on St. Sophia, and the Kontraktova square. But, I assure you, in any case, they are very beautiful,
The organizer explained that in previous years, many Ukrainians complained that Kiev set live the centennial tree. Also during the transport of a living tree from the Carpathians there were many difficulties.
According to Dobrutsky, the height of the tree at Kontraktova square will be 22 meters, and on the Sofia – 25 to 27 meters, so it is perfectly looked at the background of the Cathedral and bell tower.
Earlier, the founder of the project “Folk Ukraine” told, how exactly are you planning to get a Christmas tree.
The theme of the main tree will be the Northern lights, and Christmas town will be decorated in the style of paintings of Ukrainian painter Maria Primachenko. Next year it will be 110 years since the birth of. Therefore, we decided to give the artist all the design, lighting figures, and toys on the Christmas tree, he added.
Also, the organizers of the Christmas event added that in the capital, will open a record number of photo zones – more than 70, and at Kontraktova square will be the residence of St. Nicholas and that Christmas town.
