What awaits you
Unusual nature and mysterious Artania In the Shilov lands, you will see views of the beautiful Oka, proudly carrying its waters, meadows and forests full of mushrooms and berries. And in this reserved place you will learn about the search for traces of the mysterious Ryazanok people and Arzu - the capital of the ancient state of Slavic-Aryan Rus Artania. Let's talk about the finds confirming the hypothesis that one of the centers of the Rus was located exactly here: ceramics, coins, remnants of weapons and household items of the pre-Slavic period, which are found here as often as mushrooms growing in abundance
Myths and legends of the Shilov region Another and no less interesting side of the region is the legends about epic heroes, fairy-tale creatures and holy places. I will tell you about the homeland of the hero Dobrynya Nikitich and his magic sword, about the chamka (Ryazan mermaid), the Serpent Gorynych, the Nightingale the robber and his accomplices Terekh, Melekh and Inyak. In addition, you will visit the springs in Salaur and Zanino-Pochinki. See the dancing forest and find out why bells can be heard in the local lake. And if you want, we will include in the program the local history museum and the ethnographic center of Zaryan, where the history and folklore of the region are carefully preserved
Notable personalities in Shilov In addition, you will hear about the Ryazan Lomonosov Ivan Sreznevsky and his son Izmail Ivanovich. About Tarkovsky's house in the village of Myasnoye. And also about the President of the Russian Academy of Arts Alexei Olenin, who lived in the village of Salaur, and his daughter Anna, to whom the well-known poet dedicated the lines "I loved you …"
