Cultural Exchange: “Young People and Heritage”


In August 2015, the “Young People and Heritage” cultural exchange program was carried out in Weimar for the second time. Our colleague Youlia Vronskaya, head of International Projects Department, took part in the event. The Yasnaya Polyana Estate-Museum was one of the organizers of this project several years ago; in 2012, representatives of museums and cultural and youth organizations from Germany, Russia, Italy, Greece, Albania, Georgia, Macedonia, Portugal, and Ukraine decided to conduct a seminar for young people with a focus on the significance of cultural and historical monuments in shaping the collective memory of each nation and of Europe as a whole.

Guided Tour “Steps into Nature”


August has just begun, but the first leaves with autumn colours have already appeared on spindles and bird cherry trees. In the forest, it smells of ugly milk-caps and pepper-mushrooms. There was a time when the beautiful and diverse nature of Yasnaya Polyana inspired Leo Tolstoy. Now we offer you the chance to get to know better the places he admired and their rich history.

We invite everybody who is interested to attend our new guided tour, “Steps into Nature.” This walking tour will follow not only well-known parts of the estate, but will also bring you to its most secluded places. In these places, visitors will be able to get in touch with Yasnaya Polyana’s natural beauty and learn a little more about it.
