We took part in the development of a guide to rural tourism as part of the initiative #отдыхаемвРоссии ('let's spend vacation in Russia'), along with the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation, Perspektiva Foundation and Культура.рф portal. One of the guide's 4 sections was devoted to beautiful villages.
We picked 8 villages, 4 of which are members of the Association of the Most Beautiful Villages of Russia - Vyatkoye, Desyatnikovo, Kinerma, Oshevensky Pogost, and 4 more villages are candidates for accession to the Association - Bolshoy Kunaley, Vorzogory, Kiltsa and Kimzha. Geography of the villages' situation is wide - Arkhangelsk region, Yaroslavl region, Republics of Buryatia and Karelia.
The news about selection of beautiful villages was reprinted by many mass media, including national newspapers and portals:
