The Fourth Festival of Youth Folklore Groups “GREEN AS GRASS” at Yasnaya Polyana


On May 19, 2018 the GREEN AS GRASS festival of youth folklore groups will again take place at Yasnaya Polyana (area behind the Coachman‘s House). The festival will begin at 12:00

The guests of the festival will see and hear bright, talented young folk groups that lovingly study and perform traditional folk music of Tula Region. Among the performers will be folklore groups and duets from Tula and Venev, and from Kurkino and Yasnogorsk districts of Tula Region. The program includes traditional folk songs, instrumental tunes, dances, and games. 


The festival not only boasts an amazing musical program; participants and guests will be able to play folk games, to do round dances, and to dance the Quadrille, Matanya and Krakowiak.

On that day we‘ll invite our visitors to join thematic guided tours of the estate and the greenhouse: Steps into Nature; The Purest Joy – the Joy of Nature; Traditions of Russian Country Estates; The First Hundred Plants; and Gardens, or the Art of Creating Beautiful Landscapes. Families may also find it interesting to walk around on their own with our interactive guidebooks for children; they can be purchased at the museum’s ticket office.


Our guests will also be able to participate in various workshops (in the Smithy) under the guidance of Yasnaya Polyana craftsmen, and to taste traditional Yasnaya Polyana pastries (area near the Smithy). In addition, everybody will have a chance to have a carriage- or horseback-ride, to take photos in folk costumes, and to buy Yasnaya Polyana souvenirs and seedlings of plants from our greenhouse.
