“The Light that Shines in the Darkness” was the first joint project of the Yasnaya Polyana museum and the German foundation Schloss Neuhardenberg with its large experience of open-air theatrical performances. The joint efforts of the project partners were aimed to create and show to the public a bright and interesting performance, based on one of Leo Tolstoy’s last works – “The Light that Shines in the Darkness.” This play, which is autobiographical in many respects, reflects the last months of Tolstoy’s life at Yasnaya Polyana. 

International Project Krapivna: Revival of a Jewel of the Russian Provinces


Heritage of Thuringia Association (Heimatbund Thüringen e.V.), Germany

Heritage of Leo Tolstoy International Foundation, Russia                     

Project duration: 2 years (May 2007 – April 2009)

Krapivna – formerly a district center of the Tula Province, having a history of about 600 years – has long been known far beyond the borders of the Tula region, and not only to historians and literary critics with their professional research interests. The present-day Krapivna has become an attractive place for people of different professions and ages. Many tourists visit Krapivna during the annual Nettle Festival; but small groups of people also come here to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of an old provincial town and to feel the slow flow of time.
