Arkhangelsk Region Might Lose Unique Folk Art Museum

Arkhangelsk Region might lose its unique Museum of Folk Art founded at the elementary school in Lyadiny Village of Kargopol District.
      The ancient village of Lyadiny is located 35 km away from Kargopol. It is known for its church ensemble that tourists regularly come to look at. The ensemble of wooden architecture constructed in the 18th century includes steepled Pokrovsk Church with painted ceiling, many-domed Bogoyavlensky Church and a steepled bell-tower. The most beautiful building after the church is evidently the school, one the basis of which the Museum of Folk Art appeared.
      The museum creators have collected there exhibits of folk culture, household items, clothes and many other things that are now successfully shown to tourists. However, the village administration does not want to take care of the museum. The organizer of the museum Nadezhda Voroshchuk hopes to find some indifferent people who will help preserving the museum.
