The Day of Folk Tale – a new event in the calendar of Russian tourism – will be celebrated on March 7. On this day tourists will be offered to visit different fairytale places and the residences of folk tale characters. The chosen date will make it possible to involve in celebrating such winter heroes as Ded Moroz and Snegurochka, who according to the legend are not able to appear in summer.
The authors of the idea are the organizers of the social project “The Fairytale Map of Russia”, launched in November 2010. This project presents the information about various fairytale characters and Russian legends. It is developing rapidly and the map is updating so that tourists could plan their fairy trips. The authors believe that the Day of Folk Tale will become the traditional holiday of all fairy tales lovers and fans of innet tourism in the country.
