Krasnoyarsk will mark 500 days to go until the 2019 Winter Universiade with a number of festive events and celebrations across the city on Wednesday (October 18).
Residents are invited to take part in a number of activities, such as making souvenirs for athletes and guests attending the Winter Universiade.
Krasnoyarsk school children will get an opportunity to participate in "Universiade lessons".
This is the second module of educational classes led by the Executive Directorate of Krasnoyarsk 2019.
Students will be able to learn more about the sports included in the Universiade programme, as well as about famous athletes and Universiade Ambassadors.
A total of six schools will be involved in the project.
Participants will also be able to take part in the launching of the Winter Universiade 2019 countdown clock.
Afterwards, those in attendance will be able to enjoy theatrical and musical performances as well as visits to photo zones and entertainment venues.
Russian Sports Minister Pavel Kolobkov claimed preparations for Krasnoyarsk 2019 are on track earlier this month after chairing a meeting of the Supervisory Board overseeing the organisation of the event.
It came after Russian President Vladimir Putin warned in March that organisers must ensure there are no delays in constructing and renovating venues for the event.
Putin had convened a session to discuss preparations for the 2019 Universiade, due to run from March 2 to 12 in 2019.
Krasnoyarsk 2019 have also upped their promotional efforts in recent months.
In a bid to create public support, organisers recently launched a call for projects to help raise awareness of the event.
