The first cultural and gastronomic festival "Bogucharskii Sunflower" will be held in Boguchar, Voronezh region on August 26, the press service of the culture department of the region reports.

      As part of the festive events, which start at 14:00, guests of the festival will be able to try the products of local processing enterprises - halva and sunflower seeds. In addition, several thematic photoshoots will be organized. During the festival, several master classes, a concert, a craft fair, contests and fireworks are planned, as well as a free lottery, the main prize of which will be a ticket for two to the Crimea. The venue of the festival was chosen not casually - it was from the Voronezh land that the discovery of sunflower as an olive crop began (previously the plant imported from Holland under Emperor Peter I was used exclusively for decorative purposes).  Tasty and healthy, it quickly gained popularity.

      Voronezh is an ancient Russian provincial city set in pleasant surroundings on the banks of the Voronezh River. The region and city are fondly remembered by most Russians as it has extremely interesting folkloric history. Four hundred years ago a multitowered fortress, walled in by an oaken palisade, rose on the steep right bank of the river. This fortress was the beginning of the city of Voronezh. Young Tsar Peter the Great enjoined that "great ship-building work" be started on the banks of the river. More than 200 galleons branders and galleys came out of the Voronezh docks, the cradle of Russia's first flotillas. The region is extremely rich with talented poets, writers and literary workers. The singing verses of A. Koltsov, the moving poetry of I. Nikitin, paintings by I Kramskoi, tales collected by A.Afanasyev and folk songs picked up by M.Pyatnitsky are part of the national cultural heritage. 

      The territory of the Voronezh Region is larger than that of such European countries as Denmark (43 098 km ²), the Netherlands (41 526 km ²), Switzerland (41 284 km ²), and Belgium (32 545 km ²). The most ancient people appeared here in the late paleolith age (35 — 12 thousand years BC). The first settlements of Cro-Magnon people in the Voronezh Region were there on River Don area, near present-day Kostyonka Village, and near Voronezh, by the villages of Aleksandrovka and Borscheva in the Old Stone Age. 

      The Voronezh Region has a considerable recreational and tourist potential, which has not been fully implemented. Besides pine forests and oak groves, which are well-known for their favorable impact on man’s health, the valley of River Voronezh harbours the historical and cultural monument Divnogorye. It is a unique Orthodox Christian church hollowed by Russian monks in the thickness of a huge cretaceous mountain on the banks of Tikhaya Sosna River in Liskinsky District. In the region there are a few dozens of underground constructions dug out in chalk mainly for public worship. Since cave digging was under a ban, most of the vaults were abandoned and were investigated as caves with speleology and spelistologiya methods. In addition to that the region has a variety of summer and winter tourist camps, sanatoria, wildlife areas and reserves.
