650th Anniversary of the Foundation of the City of Kaluga

Kaluga was first mentioned in the charter of the Lithuanian prince Olgerd in 1371. This year is considered the founding date of the city. In 1389, it finally became part of the Grand Duchy of Moscow. As a watch outpost, a fortress city built on the Oka River, Kaluga became an outpost of the Moscow state, an obstacle to foreign raids from the south and west.
In 1740, the industrialist Evdokim Demidov laid the dam and the ironworks. This year can be considered the beginning of industrial production in Kaluga.
Being located at the crossroads of busy horse-drawn roads and water ways, Kaluga reached the peak of its development in the 18th-19th centuries, becoming a large industrial and trade centre. However, following the transition of the national fleet to steam engines, the gradual shallowing of the Oka River and the termination of river navigation on it, Kaluga found itself away from active routes and turned into a country town.
The rapid construction of industrial facilities in the city began during the years of the Soviet power. Many flagships of the national mechanical engineering appeared in Kaluga and launched their industrial output. Almost all of them continue to be the city-forming enterprises of Kaluga.
On 5 July 1944, the Kaluga Region was formed, and the city of Kaluga became its administrative centre.

Ad astra. Konstantin Tsiolkovsky

Discover more. Konstantin Tsiolkovsky (1857–1935) is a self-taught scientist and one of the founding fathers of modern astronautics. Neither poverty, nor hearing problems, nor isolation from the domestic scientific community could hinder his desire for the stars.
Being a weirdo and a dreamer, Tsiolkovsky devoted all his efforts to science. He sent his first research papers, Theory of Gases, The Mechanics of the Animal Organism, and The Duration of the Radiation of the Sun, to Saint Petersburg. The most prominent scientists of that time (primarily Ivan Sechenov and Alexander Stoletov) treated the self-taught youth kindly. He was even invited to join the Russian Physico-Chemical Society. Tsiolkovsky did not reply: he did not have money to pay membership fees.
Tsiolkovsky’s main project at that time was airships (the scientist decided to avoid the use of explosive hydrogen by replacing it with hot air, and the tightening system he developed allowed the ‘ship’ to maintain constant lift at various flight heights). However, Tsiolkovsky’s interest in flying above the ground faded when he became interested in stars.
In 1903, Tsiolkovsky switched to work related to space exploration. In his article Exploration of Outer Space by Means of Rocket Devices he substantiated for the first time ever that a rocket could become a vehicle for successful space flights. The scientist also developed the concept of a liquid-propellant rocket engine. In particular, he determined the speed required for the vehicle to enter the Solar System (the second cosmic velocity). Tsiolkovsky dealt with many practical issues of space that later formed the basis for Soviet rocket engineering: he proposed options for rocket control, cooling systems, the design of the nozzle and the fuel supply system.

Cherepanov Steam Locomotive

Cherepanov Steam Locomotive is the first steam train built in Russia. It was constructed in 1834 by Yefim and Miron Cherepanov (father and son), who worked as engineers at the Vyisk factory.
In 1833, factory owners sent Miron Cherepanov to England to learn advanced technology and modern technological achievements in metallurgy. There, he had an opportunity to see George Stephenson’s steam locomotive, the world’s first one used in practice. It was enough for Miron to have external inspection to decide to build the first Russian steam locomotive upon returning home.
The genius inventors did not simply reproduce the English steam locomotive; they significantly improved its technical characteristics: they modified steam production by increasing the number of fire tubes and added a reverse device thanks to which the steam locomotive could change its direction and move backwards. They also built the first Russian railway connecting the Vyisk factory and the Mednorudnyansky mine. In 1835, the Cherepanovs created the second, more powerful, steam locomotive.
Despite their practical focus, Cherepanovs’ inventions remained unrealised due to their excessively high cost and lack of well-established timber production in the railway area.

Saint George the Victorious

Starting from the 13th century, the image of Saint George the Victorious was used in Russia and its neighbouring states as an element of state symbols on princely seals, standards, coats of arms, and coins. The image was featured on the coat of arms of the Russian Empire, and is now used on the national emblem of the Russian Federation.

Novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Timed to the 200th Anniversary of his Birth (11.11.1821)

Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821–1881) is a Russian writer, philosopher and publicist. Corresponding member of the St. Petersburg Academy of Science since 1877. The classic of world literature.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote his first novel ‘Poor Folk’ in 1845. The book was warmly welcomed by Nikolay Nekrasov and Vissarion Belinsky, the trend-setters in literature in those years. Nekrasov called the novice writer a ‘new Gogol’ and published his novel in the ‘St. Petersburg Collection’ almanac.
In 1849, the writer was arrested for reading in public the banned ‘Letter to Gogol’ by Belinsky. He was amnestied in 1856 after the coronation of Tsar Alexander II. Dostoevky wrote about his life in a prison camp in Omsk in ‘Notes from the House of the Dead’. This Russian novel became one of the first to tell about katorga (hard work in prison) and the life of prisoners, their daily routine and habits. For Dostoevsky’s contemporaries, ‘Notes from the House of the Dead’ became a real revelation.
In the years to follow, the author wrote the novel ‘The Insulted and the Injured’, story ‘A Nasty Anecdote’, newspaper story ‘Winter Notes on Summer Impressions’, and novella ‘Notes from Underground’.

In the 1860s, Dostoevsky published journals ‘Vremya’ and ‘Epoha’, which supported ‘Pochvennichestvo’, a specific idea of Slavophilism, which attempted to find a common platform in order to reconcile Westerners and Slavophils. At that period, the writer frequently went abroad, visiting Germany, France, England, Switzerland, Italy, and Austria. During those travels he developed a gambling addiction, which he later described in his novel ‘The Gambler’.

In the 1860-80s, Fyodor Dostoyevsky wrote novels that were later called his great five books, i.e. ‘Crime and Punishment’, ‘The Idiot’, ‘Demons’, ‘The Adolescent’, and ‘The Brothers Karamazov’. All of them, except ‘The Adolescent’, were included in Top 100 Works in World Literature by Norwegian Book Club, with the Norwegian Nobel Institute. The novel ‘The Brothers Karamazov’ became the last work by Dostoyevsky.

Poet Nikolay Nekrasov, Timed to the 200th Anniversary of his Birth (10.12.1821)

Nikolay Nekrasov (1821–1878) is a Russian poet, writer and publisher whose works have become classics of Russian literature. Today’s readers know him as the poet who paid the greatest attention to peasant life – he was the first to raise the issue of serfdom and explore the inner world of Russian peasants.
In 1840, Nekrasov published his first collection of poems Dreams and Sounds, but neither readers nor critics found it a success. Deeply upset by this failure in poetry, Nekrasov decided to try his hand at prose. His first stories and short novels were written in a realistic style: the plots were based on events and developments the author himself observed or took part in. Later, Nekrasov also created a series of satirical works.
Beginning from the middle of the 1840s, Nekrasov was deeply involved in publishing. He was engaged in the publication of the Petersburg Collection anthology which first presented Dostoyevsky’s novel Poor People. At the end of 1846, Nekrasov became the editor of The Contemporary magazine that discovered such talents as Ivan Goncharov, Ivan Turgenev, Alexander Herzen, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and Mikhail Saltykov-Shchedrin. Nekrasov was also one of the permanent authors of the magazine, regularly issuing his poems, prose, literary criticism, and journalistic articles. In 1866, after The Contemporary was closed, Nekrasov started contributing for the Notes of the Fatherland magazine. Simultaneously, the poet was creating one of his major works – the epic poem about peasants Who Lives Well in Russia.
The author’s idea was to demonstrate Russian peasants’ life from various perspectives. In this poem, Nekrasov deliberately used not a high-flown, but common language which is close to folk songs and tales abundant in colloquialisms and proverbs. It took him almost 14 years to complete this poem, but even this period was not sufficient for Nekrasov to fully realise his idea – he fell ill with a serious disease.
After Nekrasov died, thousands of people came to pay tribute to his memory. This was the first time when so many people rendered homage to a Russian writer.

Centenary of the Vakhtangov Theatre

The Vakhtangov Theatre is a drama theatre in Moscow.
The history of the theatre began in 1921, when the play ‘The Miracle of Saint Anthony’ (directed by Eugene Vakhtangov) was performed in the Arbat building.
In 1922, the Vakhtangov Theatre company played the premier of ‘Princess Turandot’, which was destined to become the theatre’s hallmark for many years to come.
In the 20th century, the Vakhtangov Theatre was managed by legendary theatre directors and actors, such as Ruben Simonov, Eugene Simonov and Mikhail Ulyanov. Since 2007, Rimas Tuminas has been the artistic director of the Vakhtangov Theatre.
The theatre tours extensively in Russia and abroad. Theatre lovers in many countries especially favour ‘Eugene Onegin’, ‘Uncle Vanya’, ‘The Masquerade’, ‘Give Us a Smile, O Lord’, ‘Mademoiselle Nitouche’, ‘Minetti’, etc.

Masha and the Bear

‘Masha and the Bear’ is the first Russian animated series that speaks the same language with children and adults all over the world, while telling about the friendship of the little girl Masha and the Bear, a former circus performer. The interaction between the characters of the series reflects the relations between a child who gets to know the world and an adult trying to help the child in this difficult endeavour.
Masha is an incredibly active little girl who never sits still and firmly believes that the world around belongs to her alone. The personality of Masha is virtually boundless, so an arts and crafts lesson may easily transform into the building of a sailing boat, and an artist’s tool kit helps her paint the whole forest. Despite the absence of explicit teaching elements, each episode becomes a smart and musical story about kindness, curiosity and spontaneity.

Despite the absence of explicit teaching elements, each episode becomes a smart and musical story about kindness, curiosity and spontaneity.
