What did the Simbirsk residents treat Alexander Pushkin to 190 years ago? Which of the Simbirians was the great poet friends with? And what are the legends about his stay in our city?
Participants of the “This is Pushkin!” creative city tour learned about this and much more on September 20. Students of the "Dar" Simbirsk gymnasium named after Alexander Nevsky took part in the event.
The children enjoyed the tour through the historical part of Ulyanovsk, learned who Alexander Sergeevich was friends with and with whom he was related. We “met” the poet Nikolai Yazykov and the daughter of the Simbirsk governor Elizaveta Zagryazhskaya, who shared their memories of their meeting with Pushkin.
“This is Pushkin!” project is implemented with the support of the Presidential Fund for Cultural Initiatives. The organizers of the project: Ulyanovsk UNESCO City of Literature, the Ulyanovsk Regional Art Museum and the “Center for Development and Support of Creative Projects “Simbirsk” Autonomous Non-profit Organization.
