To Semyonovsky mountain tourism

A real fabulous corner in the north of the Nizhny Novgorod region, which has absorbed the most extraordinary crafts of Russia: khokhloma, matryoshka, carving, spoon, embroidery, felt boots and shoemaking, and has preserved the crafts to this day. How did you manage to carry this beauty through time? She was sung in poetry, songs, preserved by the people in the traditions.

Archival manuscripts tell the following about the past of the Semyonovsky district. The settlement of the territory began in the 15th century, the territory belonged to the Verkhne-Kerzhenskaya volost of the Makaryevsky monastery and was considered marginal land. The inhabitants of these places appreciated their territory and often said - "He who is with the land is with the war." They paid the minimum amount of taxes, but the forest still fed - rich boarding lands, fur animals, fish and forest. Deaf impenetrable forests became the main wealth of the Trans-Volga peasants. Already in 1616, archival documents record the first professional spoon-maker - Gavrilo Ivanov, son of Lozhkarev. By the end of the 18th century, the Semenovskaya spoon, a chiseled cup and carving dominated the Russian markets. Documents have been preserved indicating that more than 100 thousand spoons a year were made in the Semyonovsky district. During this period, the population growth was recorded from ten thousand to forty. Semyonov's harsh places attracted schismatics persecuted for their faith. The resettlement of Old Believers to the north was massive. This is how handwritten books, casting, gold appear in the Semyonovsky district, and most importantly, knowledge - how to get, cut, paint, save. The course of history and nature have rooted the tradition of creating and creating. Semyonov was famous for spoon-carving craftsmen, turners, carvers and artists. History and cultural heritage are preserved at the Khokhloma painting factory and in the city's museums. The first museum was opened in 1934 by Georgy Petrovich Matveyev and was called the “Museum of Handicrafts”.

- Museum - tourist center "Golden Khokhloma" will introduce you to traditional painting and rare modern exhibits of the factory.

- Museum of Folk Life "House of Semyon - Lozhkar" - house-reconstruction, demonstrating peasant life and a collection of spoons.

- "Museum of Folk Crafts" - an old mansion with a private collection of sewing machines, scales and kerosene lamps, a kind museum for a small company or family.

- "Matryoshka Museum" - a private museum with a large collection of souvenir toys.

- "Museum of Samovars". This is an unusual private museum, which is located on the territory of the hotel complex "Semenovsky Ark" and includes an exposition of 100 old samovars. You can visit the tea room and the opportunity to order a tea tasting with pies.

Samovars sing about the museum ...

You can study history in different places and in different ways, but the most interesting happens when you manage to touch the masterpieces or become a participant in the action. Today we invite you to visit the "living" museum of samovars in Semyonov. The exposition opened quite recently, but has already managed to surprise residents and guests of the city.

Private collection owner, Rector of the Institute, Honored Scientist of the Russian Federation, Academician MAM Alexander Petrovich Egorshin. The collection chronologically covers the period from the early 19th century to the fifties of the 20th century. The main part of the collection is made up of samovars made in Tula factories. The collection contains samovars of the most famous Tula - manufacturers: Batashevs, Kapyrzina, Teile, Shemarins. Samovars have a wide variety of shapes: "jar", glass "," ball "," vase "," egg "," barrel "," turnip "and the material: red copper, brass, white metal, applied silver, copper with electroplated silver coated, porcelain.

They stand in gold and tell their amazing stories. One - a large tavern with 50 liters, prepared tea for 100 people at once and distributed it from a large screw tap. The other is very small, for a mug of tea. It could be warmed up on the road or on a long hike in just a couple of minutes. The third is an aristocrat with medals on the sides and handles, as if talking about his ancient, pre-revolutionary youthful origin and the family that worked on his amazing birth.

By the way, the medals on the samovar speak volumes, here is the nationality, the author, and the year of issue. The first samovars worked on charcoal and had a rather complex structure: a jug, a wall, a lid, a cap, a burner, an air vent, a handle, a tap, a key - all this and much more was contained in each samovar. For the manufacture, copper was initially used (more precisely, an alloy of copper with zinc). Since it was customary to polish these products to a shine, the copper samovar would break down very quickly. After a while, the craftsmen began to use brass and cupronickel.

The samovar became especially popular in the nineteenth century. This invention was not intended only for making tea. It was an exquisite decoration for the interior of the kitchen and living room. Over time, technical progress took its toll and samovars boiled in the kitchen with the help of an electric spiral and remained no less beautiful thanks to the painting.

Sergey Strygin would have turned 60 on December 2, 2020. And we would all gather again at Emilich's house at the table and have a lot of fun ... But alas, it turned out differently. Sergey made a huge contribution to the development of the MAI Turkclub and brought up more than one generation of tourists - Mayev residents. On this day, people of different ages gathered in his apartment. Various political and religious views, sometimes directly opposite. Athletes, aiming to achieve difficult peaks and veterans of tourism, whose sporting achievements are already in the past. People of absolutely different professions gathered at one table: from a diplomat to a driver. And Sergei united us all. It was like a fire in a winter forest, to which everyone was drawn and everyone received light and warmth. And now more than three years have passed, and we are all so different, in spite of everyday worries, we continue to gather on the 31st and 2nd, or around these dates. We share memories, watch photos and videos. Sergey continues to unite us all. In May 2012, I asked Sergei to tell him about the most difficult mountain hikes of 1988 - 1990, with ascents to all seven-thousanders of the USSR. At that time, it was the highest sporting achievement in mountain tourism, and four of them fulfilled the "Snow Leopard" standard, including Sergei. And now I want to share with you the memories and thoughts of Sergei about those events. And we all once again remember this wonderful Person!
