The Russian Hunting festival will be held for the second time on the territory of the Museum of Architecture and Ethnography Semyonkovo.

The main objective of the festival is to tell tourists and residents of the region about the ancient traditions of the Russian North, to attract tourists to the Vologda Region and to expand the tourist flow to our region. This festival will allow everyone to learn more about the natural resources of our region.

Vologda’s residents and guests of the city will be able to watch master classes of hunters. During the festival, professional hunters will show the work of greyhounds and demonstrate ways to lure birds and wild animals.

Master classes in archery and contests will be arranged for children. The museum houses will host master classes of traditional folk culture and an exhibition of hunting trophies.

According to Governor Oleg Kuvshinnikov, the Vologda Region has considerable hunting resources. The hunting area of over 14 million ha is the largest in the northwestern part of Russia.

“We invite wildlife photographers and other nature lovers to come to the Vologda Region and get acquainted with hunting traditions. Hunters will give you tips to capture great hunting memories on camera. You can just enjoy the beauty of nature and the animals that live in their nature environment and watch their behavior,” noted up Oleg Kuvshinnikov.
