Lomonosov's Land

Kholmogory is one of the ancient settlements in the Russian North. For centuries it used to be an administrative, religious and cultural centre of the whole of the Dvina Land; Russia used to arrange all its external economic links via Kholmogory.

The settlement of Kholmogory is situated on the bank of the Northern Dvina, 75 km south-east of Arkhangelsk. The Kholmogory first mentioning in chronicles belongs to the year of 1137. As legend says, the main settlement of Chud Zavolotskaya tribes used to be at the place; later there appeared a Scandinavian trading colony where the Vikings stopped to trade peacefully with the locals.

The history of Kholmogory is connected with the name of Peter the Great, who visited the place three times. The Kholmogory Land was a native place of M.V. Lomonosov, a freat Russian scientist and reformer, of F.A, Popov, an explorer who first reached the Bering Channel in 1648, of sculptor Fedot Shubin, of poet Nikolai Rubtsov, of Hero of the Soviet Union P.I.Galushin.

Since the 17th century the functions of the Russian North administrative and cultural centre were delegated to Arkhangelsk, and Kholmogory became a provincial town which has preserved its northern character. Centuries-old traditions, industries, and folklore of the Pomor people are reflected in the expositions of the History Museum Memorial of M.V. Lomonosov.

Kholmogory is famous for being a centre of a specific craft, the carved bone of Kholmogory. The traditional craft appeared here in the 17th century, today it is supported and promoted by artisans working at a bone carving workshop named after M.V. Lomonosov.

The event tourism embraces traditional annual Lomonosov Readings in Kholmogory and Recitals in memory of the poet Nikolai Rubtsov held in Yemetsk.

We can offer different tours to the homeland of the great Russian scientist Mikhail Lomonosov.
