Дирекция «Ульяновск- литературный город ЮНЕСКО» рада представить открытки «Пушкин в Симбирске», созданные при поддержке Президентского фонда культурных инициатив в рамках проекта «Ай да Пушкин!»
Эти открытки можно смело назвать картами с альтернативными туристскими маршрутами. Ведь каждая из них вдохновляет на путешествие по Ульяновску, а еще на изучение истории пребывания в нашем городе Александра Пушкина. Набор открыток, например, получили счастливчики-участники интеллектуального квиза ЗБС, ответив на вопросы дирекции
Эксклюзивный продукт создан совместно с художником-иллюстратором Павлом Клементьевым. Он привнес в эту историю свой уникальный творческий взгляд.
«Сюжеты рисовались по старым фотографиям. Очень важно, чтобы городские здания были похожи на те, которые стояли во времена Пушкина. Потому что сейчас где-то что-то подремонтировалось, где-то цвет поменялся. Конфигурация здания изменилась. Небольшая сложность была в том, что фотографии были черно-белые, и непонятно, какого цвета здания тогда были. Поэтому рисунок как бы выходит из черно-белой фотографии: он серо-голубоватый с вкраплениями», - рассказал Павел Клементьев.
Вспомним яркие моменты квиза "ЗБС", где команды интеллектуалов получили в подарок открытки "Пушкин в Симбирске". Открытки созданы в рамках проекта "Ай да Пушкин!": https://vk.com/wall-116703960_4549
Каждая из них - это увлекательная история в формате шуточных иллюстраций о Симбирске Пушкинской эпохи со старинными кулинарными рецептами на обороте. Не все здания существовали во время приезда Пушкина в наш город, например, здание Дворянского собрания, но вместе они составляют интересный туристский маршрут, рассказывающий о Симбирске XIX века

On November 16, the luckiest ZBS-quiz players will receive “Pushkin in Simbirsk” postcards
The postcards were drawn by Pavel Klementyev, Ulyanovsk artist and published in a limited edition.
The postcards are a part of the “This is Pushkin!” project dedicated to the 190th anniversary of the great poet’s visit to our city. The initiative is supported by the Presidential Fund for Cultural Initiatives (PFKI agreement 23-2-017106) Organizers: Ulyanovsk UNESCO City of Literature, Directorate, Ulyanovsk Regional Art Museum, Center for Development and Support of Creative Projects "Simbirsk" Autonomous Non-profit Organization.
Students from India and two students from China who came to Ulyanovsk under the exchange program took part in the tour.
The tour started with a visit to the studio where they watched the process of stone working and had a conversation with the craftsmen. They learned new fascinating facts: for example, simbircite stone is often called the “Volga region amber” because of the stones’ similar color.
Ulyanovsk UNESCO City of Literature Invites Students from India and China to visit the World’s Only Museum of Simbircite. The Museum is situated in Ulyanovsk
Inside the Simbircite Chamber the students saw unique art objects – a throne made of simbircite, the Firebird and Cornucopia mosaic, the Stream of Energy fountain, a special collection of ammonites including the biggest sample of the Volga region and other exceptional stone art pieces.
The guests were impressed with the showpieces and enjoyed the tour – they have learned about a truly unique stone found exclusively in Ulyanovsk region.
We would like to thank the Center for Stone-Cutting Art of the Ulyanovsk Region of the Folk Art Enterprise @ammondofficial ("Ammond") for such an informative tour for the foreign students!
Ulyanovsk UNESCO City of Literature, Centralized Library System of Ulyanovsk organized the “This is Pushkin!” open class in cooperation with the Gymnasium №2

We want to tell you about the interesting project "Convenient literature"
The project under this name was created by Elena Novichkova, a resident of the Ulyanovsk region, who won the Tinkoff Bank grant competition for social initiatives
Already in early autumn, thanks to the grant, seven benches of all colors of the rainbow appeared, and even with illustrations. They are dedicated to famous poets and writers whose names are associated with Simbirsk - Dmitry Minaev, Nikolai Yazykov, Ivan Goncharov, Sergei Aksakov, Nikolai Karamzin and... Alexander Pushkin. As you remember, 190 years ago it was in Simbirsk that the great poet collected materials about the uprising of Yemelyan Pugachev
Elena "caught" the desire of many to read outdoors, combined carpentry and literature. Her husband, a novice carpenter, and schoolchildren from the village of Arkhangelskoye in the Ulyanovsk region joined the project. And the Ulyanovsk artist Olga Sheptalina took up the illustrations.
There are doors on the benches where you can put coffee or lemonade while enjoying reading. Now these literary art objects are traveling around Ulyanovsk and the Ulyanovsk region – they have visited city libraries, including the recently opened Pushkin Model Children's Library No. 24, and other libraries and schools in the region. There are many more routes ahead of them. The project helps to popularize literature and local history among the younger generation
