The 7th International Garden of Geniuses Festival


On July 1-6, 2016, the Garden of Geniuses art festival will take place at Yasnaya Polyana for the seventh time. As usual, the guests of the festival will have a chance to get in touch with the heritage of the classics of world literature brought to life in theater performances, concerts, exhibitions, films, and lectures. Detailed information about the program can be found and tickets purchased at the festival’s web site (in Russian): 

The “Little Country – We Exist!“ Exhibition Has Finished Its Work at the Yasnaya Polyana Gallery

Its main guests, typically for early summer, were teachers and school students attending city summer camps. The creativity of disabled children of the same age not only touched those visitors’ feelings and emotions, but also encouraged them to create their own artworks. Photos >>>

This time we let the children try their hand at a technique that was unusual and new for them – pastel drawing. This technique is duly referred to as a „butterfly in the flower garden of arts,“ or the „most romantic princess in the world of painting.“ 

New Guided Walks at the Yasnaya Polyana Estate

The Yasnaya Polyana museum invites everyone to enjoy the beauty of the estate’s nature and offers a number of new guided walks in the central part of the estate: The Orchards, or The Art of Creating Beautiful Landscapes; The Purest Joy – the Joy of Nature; Russian Country Estate Traditions; and a walk through more remote parts of the estate, Steps to Nature.

These guided walks are offered in Russian only; or you can bring your own translator.
