Pushkin Petersburg is a unique phenomenon of Russian culture. It is impossible to imagine St. Petersburg without Pushkin, but the poet’s life without St. Petersburg is unthinkable. Here he spent his best years of youth, on the Neva banks he gained fame as the first poet in Russia, here his life was tragically cut short. Petersburg glorified by Pushkin’s poetry became a part of his poetic world. In the year of the 220th anniversary of the Alexander Pushkin birth Museum of Urban Sculpture will hold a Festival “Pushkingrad”. Petersburg residents and guests of the Northern capital of Russia will be able to visit exhibitions, excursions and other events that will take place throughout the year in all branches of the museum. The festival will open on February 8 with a memorial event at the place of Alexander Pushkin’s duel on the Black River. Пресс-релиз
