Exhibition “Lyubov Talimonova. Ways and Paths of Life”

Local History Museum of Krapivna 

Shortly before the New Year, an exhibition of art works by Lyubov Talimonova (1971-2011) will open in Krapivna. “Painting for me is a whole story, legend, fairy tale, which I am telling people without using words,” the artist used to say. Her life may have been short, but very few people are able to create an entire world during their lives and give it to people, moreover while constantly trying to overcome pain. 

Exhibition “Soldiers of Victory – Christian Warriors”

Local History Museum of Krapivna

December 19, 2014 is the 73rd anniversary of the liberation of Krapivna from the German army after a two-month occupation. By a surprising coincidence, this occurred on the holiday of Nikolay the Miracle-Worker, a saint for whom the Krapivna cathedral is named. Some people believe that the saint himself helped the town withstand and drive off the occupiers.

The exhibition “Soldiers of Victory – Christian Warriors” is dedicated to this event. It tells about the church employees and officials of the Tula eparchy, who heroically went through the Great Patriotic War and then in peacetime took holy orders.
