Get ready for winter before the summer heat dissipates at Lenexpo’s Fur Trade Fair starting today and running through Aug. 17. Organized by TorgMex, a fur manufacturer that dates back to the Soviet era, numerous items will be made available at significant discounts for those looking forward to colder weather.

Head out to Lakhta, on the Gulf of Finland, to attend the first races of the Russian Open Sailing Championships. The event begins at noon with sailors aged nine to 19 years old competing for the top prize.
