#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The program of the festivities has opened today. During the Maslenitsa week, the Norilsk Museum invites everyone to the Russian Tea Party, an exhibition of samovars from the private collection of Natalia (Hafiza) Boraganchieva from Sosnovoborsk. The exposition includes old and modern, hot and electric tea machines with a history, as well as samovar accessories – trays, napkins, teapots. The exhibition is supplemented by graphic works by famous Norilsk artists and household items of Russian antiquity from the Norilsk Museum funds.
The main holiday will traditionally take place at the end of the Pancake week, on Sunday, March 14.
At the charity fair, handicrafts will be presented by the Victoria rehabilitation center, the Territory of Good charitable foundation, the Norilsk mercy center, the station of young technicians and Norilsk masters of decorative and applied arts.
A large concert program with the participation of folklore ensembles will take place.
“And for the first time Maslenitsa will not gather the residents of Norilsk in large numbers on the square, but will go along the city streets to surprise and delight all passers-by, making stops along the way with Russian folk songs and dances. To feel spring is not far off in both Taimyr and Norilsk, the traditional burning of Maslenitsa will take place at the end of the unusual route in a secret place”, they say in the museum.
