Beautiful shores of Tavrida

In 1820, great Russian poet Alexandr Pushkin lived in Crimea about a month – since August 15 to September 12-14, though local authorities found this short time enough to be a reason for organization Pushkin readings which became a yearly tradition. May 27, in Crimea, International Pushkin Days opened, RIA ‘Novosti’ reports. The “geography” of this festival is very rich: Gurzuf, Kerch, Bakhchisarai, Feodosia, Alupka, Novy Svet, Perekop – in other words, all the cities the great Russian poet visited or just passed. Crimean specialists studied literally every day of Pushkin’s stay in Tavrida: the ships he went by, his poems devoted to Crimea or connected with Crimea. Many details of Alexandr Pushkin’s biography found by them are real discoveries fixed in monographs. This year, since May 28 to June 2, in the city of Alushta, 6th International Pushkin Conference takes place, called “Pushkin and World Literature.” To this conference, specialist in study of Pushkin will come from Russia, the US, Japan, Korea, Great Britain, France, Germany, Finland. In the framework of the forum, the visitors will see points of interests which once inspired Pushkin.
