    Toila sea resort is also a place of concerts and festivals. Becouse of this there is nice concet-scene created in the picturesque park of Toila. There are sitting places in open air. In summer time there are different concerts organised. One local traditional party is a "Miner's day" when thousands of people come here and have fun.
