Varvara Parfenova, cultural worker of the village of Tverdokhlebovo: “Every holiday, farewell to winter is never complete without kulesh, people always eat. What is kulesh? This is something between soup and porridge. What it consists of - first you pour water into the cauldron, peel potatoes, you need a lot of potatoes, about half of the water.
After the potatoes, millet will go into the pot, followed by overcooking: raw bacon, cut into thin slices and a lot of onions. At the stake, festive porridge is also prepared with songs, otherwise, they say, there will be no appetite.

Belokamenny Vladimir, the former capital of ancient Russia, attracts tourists with its centuries-old history.

What can you bring from Vladimir? First of all, these are handicrafts inspired by old art crafts of the Vladimir region. Gastronomic souvenirs and local spirits are also popular. Read more about all options for gifts and souvenirs from Vladimir with photos - below.

Initially, the horn in Russia was a signal instrument. Then, shepherds began to use it. Moreover, not only for work, but also for playing simple melodies. Among the peasants, shepherd's horns became popular as simple musical instruments. In the 19th century, peasant hornbills from Vladimir began to travel to other provinces to perform at fairs and rural festivals. The success was so great that the Vladimir horn players performed for Emperor Alexander III and, later, in Paris and Berlin. Now you can buy a simple musical instrument in souvenir shops. Original shepherd's horns are made from birch, juniper or maple. Juniper horns are considered the best.
Vladimir's gastronomic symbol is cherry. According to legend, cherries began to be grown on the Vladimir land in the 12th century. Prince Andrey Bogolyubsky brought her to Vladimir from warmer Kiev. But the cherry took root in Vladimir and already in the 17th century the city was famous throughout Russia for the most delicious cherry. Before the revolution, Vladimir ranked first in the country in terms of the number of cherry orchards. Nowadays, the Cherry Spas festival is held here every year, where you can taste fresh and canned cherries, as well as sweets from this berry. But, even if you visit Vladimir at a different time, cherry souvenirs can be purchased in tourist shops, markets or supermarkets.
