Exhibition «Swamps: A Whole World»


February 14-26, 2013
Yasnaya Polyana Cultural Center in the village of Yasnaya Polyana

Opening of the exhibition: at 13.00

Come to see this exhibition, and you will learn that the swamp is an amazing and wonderful world with its own – sometimes quite unusual – inhabitants, and with a lot of secrets. Many of you will be surprised to know that swamps can be found almost everywhere; and the Yasnaya Polyana estate is no exception. Another interesting and somewhat unexpected fact is that the flora of the swamps is pretty diverse and that some plants growing in the swamps resemble those of the deserts. And we’ll tell you why. 


You will see that in spite of the widely-spread opinion, swamps are not as dull and gloomy as we usually think! To say nothing of their important role in the environment. Is it really necessary to drain swamps? Let us think about it together. 

On February 2, we annually mark the World Wetlands Day. And there is an international bureau that has been involved in the preservation and restoration of swamps for nearly 20 years – the Wetlands International. It sponsored the exhibition «Swamps: A Whole World», which was created by the Tula Local History and Art Museum and the Leo Tolstoy Pedagogical University of Tula. This exhibition has already been shown in local history museums of the towns of Venyov, Shchekino, Efremov and Chern, and also in the «Losiny Ostrov» National Park in Moscow.
