Kulikovo Field Expanded by 600 Hectares

More than 600 hectares of land in the Tula Region are transferred to the category of specially protected natural areas. 

      According to the decision of administration, the lands are given to the State Military Historical and Natural Memorial Estate “Kulikovo Field”.

      Kulikovo Field is a historical site on watersheds of Oka and Don interfluves, which is the assumed area of crucial Kulikovo Battle on September 8, 1380 between united forces of Russian princes under leadership of the grand prince of Moscow Dimitrii Ivanovich and the army of Khan Mamay of the Golden Horde. The battle resulted in defeat of the Tatar Mongol army.

      A branch of the Tula Regional Museum of Local Lore was established on the Kulikovo Field in the 1960s and started works on restoration of monuments and land improvement.
