Volunteer Weekend at Yasnaya Polyana


As part of the Museum Volunteer Camp project, volunteers worked at the Yasnaya Polyana Estate on May 11-13, 2018. Sixteen volunteers gathered branches of windfallen trees in the Firs Near the Well, the Poddonny Ravine, and the Afonina Grove. They were joined by a group of corporate volunteers - 37 employees of the Unipro company, who were responsible for cleaning the Old Zakaz, the Oak Wedge, and the Cut Zakaz woods. Their efforts made forest paths much more convenient for tourists.

On those same days, 2nd-year students of the Natural Science Institute of Tula State University who specialize in bio-ecology worked at the estate. They did weeding and tillage of one- and two-year-old fir saplings.

Apple Trees Blooming at Yasnaya Polyana


„Spring is in full swing. The apple trees are blooming and they are amazing. There is something bewitching and wild in their blooming. I have never seen anything like this before. You look out of the window into the orchard – and every time you are struck by the beauty of these light white clouds of blossom in the air, with a shade of pink here and there and the fresh green background in the distance,” Sophia Tolstaya wrote in her diary one hundred and twenty seven years ago, on May 15, 1891.

This magic is repeated every year, and you can walk among the blooming apple trees even this coming weekend, if you visit Yasnaya Polyana. On Sunday, May 13, in addition to standard guided tours, we will offer a thematic tour, Orchards and the Art of Creating Beautiful Landscapes. It will start from the museum’s entrance towers at 12:00 and 14:00. Cost of a ticket – 150 rubles. Number of places is limited. Information at +7 48751 76125.
