Matryoshka with national Chuvash patterns will become an exhibit of the Matryoshka Museum, opened at the Russian Cultural and Educational Center "Pushkin House" in Seoul. The unique doll will allow visitors to get acquainted with the national costume and traditions of the Chuvash people.

The matryoshka, created by the famous Chuvash craftswoman Lyudmila Vasilyeva, consists of 8 dolls. The author dressed each of them in a unique Chuvash costume with national patterns. The project for the delivery of the matryoshka to Seoul is being implemented by the Ministry of Economic Development of Chuvashia and other departments and organizations.

The republic expects that the matryoshka will contribute to the rapprochement of the peoples of Chuvashia and South Korea, acquaint the country's residents with the cultural traditions of the Russian region. The special diplomatic role of the matryoshka is also evidenced by the fact that it will go to Seoul by diplomatic mail through the Association for International Cooperation.

In many countries of the world, the matryoshka is perceived as a symbol of Russian culture. The Month for Studying Matryoshka was opened in Turkey in March.

Eyewitnesses have said and written a lot about the events of the Great Patriotic War, about the ordeals suffered by the people. Every family has at least one story from this tragic period in our country’s life. On the threshold of Victory Day, let us look through the memories of those who led the military operations, and read the Marshals’ memoirs.
“Sometimes I wandered about a huge park in the center of New York and, looking at the skyscrapers that bordered it, thought with cold fury about wonderful American orchestras that didn’t care about my music…” Sergei Prokofiev wrote in 1918, immediately after emigration. The audience listening to The Love for Three Oranges, his opera, would never think that the composer of this brilliant sunny music could speak that bitterly about the country where he had his first real success. And that 18 years later, he would finally return to his homeland to see new openings for both life and creativity.
