Winter Palace to Appear in Russia

The social project “The Fairytale Map of Russia” has created one more tourist route – Arkhangelsk region is now considered to be a home to Winter from Russian folk tales.

      The residence of Winter will include the Winter Palace with a throne hall and the national crafts centre. The Palace will be opened in Yarensk – a small town situated 500 km south-east of Arkhangelsk. According to the local chronicle, the most strong snowstorm with high wind was recorded here. It happened December 21, 1882, right at the winter solstice and this date is believed to be the Winter's birthday.

      As this region is famous for its forests and clean rivers, the local authorities hope to attract people interested in nature and history together with fans of fairy tales.

      “The Fairytale Map of Russia” has already united about 30 towns and villages throughout the country. According to it, the nearest Winter's neighbors will be Snowman from Arkhangelsk and Ded Moroz from Veliky Ustyug.
