Azerbaijanis’ loveliest holiday Novruz Bayram is around the corner. Today, the country celebrates the Earth or Last Tuesday (Torpag or Akhir Chershenbesi) prior to the main holiday to be held on March 20-21.

The city's executive power decided to make the last Tuesday more fun for the citizens of the city and has prepared a solemn ceremony with several entertaining programs.

The event which started at 11:00 near the “Icherisheher” subway was remembered with a festive march caravan.

The caravan composed of chaise and musicians was in the national spirit. Attendance of riders in national dress, as well as camels and the main characters of Novruz, including Dede Gorgud, Bahar gizi, Kechal and Kosa attracted the attention of the public.
