The International Day for Monuments and Sites is marked all over the world today. This year, its theme is "Heritage of Commemoration." Let us always remember that cultural heritage  is one of our chief values and that it is important not only to produce, but also to preserve. And, of course, we wish everyone who works in the heritage sector a happy holiday!

Spring Is Coming

03April 14, 2014

The snow has already melted and the first singing birds have come, but the spring is very slowly coming into its own. The puddles in the forest are still covered with thin ice in the mornings, and cold northeast wind at times chills one to the bone. But when the sun comes out, we clearly see that the spring is timidly making its steps forward. On the fringes of the woods, anemones, lung-worts, willows and pileworts began blooming. Protected from the wind by fir-trees, liverleaf  has opened its flowers. Partlet is in blossom, and  yellow stars of gagea can also be seen on their thin stalks.  On the Voronka River life became more active too; brown frogs are croaking and their first egg sacs appeared.
