Kirillo-Belozersky Museum-Reserve is photographed by the residents of Kirillov: the action “This is My Town” started on October 1; it is also referred to as “My Favorite Town” on the Internet. It was initiated by the young activists of the youth centre “Alfa”, as the press service of Kirillo-Belozersky Museum Reserve reports.
The venue for the action is a social network “Vkontakte” and the resource “Instagram” where the residents of Kirillov post their selfies with the appealing monument. In this case they describe the selected historical place with two or three words and pass “the baton” to their friends, urging them to make such photos. The action has a special hashtag #Kirillovspamyatnikom (Kirillov with the monument) indicated by the participants in their posts. The photos with the towers of Kirillo-Belozersky Monastery, former merchant houses, buildings of the religious school, the People’s House, as well as the monuments to V.I. Lenin, the commemorative plaque to the mathematician D. Grave, appeared on the personal pages of the town residents.
