The alternative view of national historical and local events exemplifies the profound transformation of a German city under the consequences of war and political upheaval.
The most colourful event in June in Narva is City Days. Traditionally this event falls on the first weekend of the month. The program of the city’s main event is made in such a way that the residents and guests can take an active part in it, rather than just look on. The list of activities includes sports competitions, contests, concerts, exhibitions, artisan fairs, a solemn procession through the streets of the city, theatrical performances, a festival of national cultural societies, a community walking tour, interactive programs, etc.
This is a festival, where one can get to know contemporary classical music, watch and listen to the world's premieres and works from young creatives (musicians, artists, directors), who present well-known classics with other professionals of the field. \
Historical exhibition on the 600-year history of the University of Rostock in the Cultural History Museum of Rostock.
Central works by Johann Sebastian Bach in various interpretations. Contemporary music, dance, theatre and science can be experienced as a connection but also as a counterpoint to the music of Bach.
The traditional start of the summer season at the seaside resort is ushered in every year with the Warnemünde River Awakening. There are many attractions between the “Alte Strom” (“Old Branch of the Warnow River”) and the lighthouse, and a varied entertainment programme for old and young can be experienced.
Artisan craftwork and culinary delicacies are presented on the promenade along the Alte Strom. Cabaret and musicians also provide melodious entertainment.
The seaside resort Warnemünde and the Rostock Heath celebrate Easter with old customs, a colourful family programme and the Easter Bonfire right on the beach.
