The opening ceremony of the Summer Olympic Games will be held on the Seine River
The Board of Directors of the Organizing Committee of the Olympic Games to be held in Paris in 2024 approved the opening ceremony of the Games, which for the first time in the history of the Summer Olympic Games will be held outside the stadium.
According to the plan, the participating countries of the ceremony will sail on special boats along the river for a specified distance of 6 kilometers. The length of the parade route, for which 80 huge screens will be installed on both sides of the coast, will be 6 kilometers.
At least 600 thousand spectators will attend the ceremony: they will be able to watch it from bridges and river embankments.
It is worth noting that if this project is implemented, it will be the first opening ceremony in the history of the Olympic Games, which will take place along the river.
