    Sergey Yesenin
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Sergey Yesenin was a Russian lyrical poet. He was one of the most popular and well-known Russian poets of the 20th century. He was born on 21 September 1895 in Konstantinovo and died 27 December 1925 in S.Petersburg.

    Hey there, Russia…

    Hey there, Russia, mother country,
    Cottages in icon guise...
    Never-ending land of wonder,
    Vistas blue that suck the eyes.

    Like a passing holy pilgrim
    On your fields I turn my gaze,
    On the outskirts of poor villages
    Rustling poplars pine and fade.

    Smelling of sweet honey and apples
    Churches celebrate the Lord
    And the sounds of festive dancing
    Fill the fields and meadows broad.

    Off into the open country
    Down a beaten path I run
    And to meet me, light as catkins,
    Peals of girlish laughter come.

    If the heavenly host should beg me:
    "Come to live in heaven above!"
    I shall say: "Don't give me heaven
    But the Russia that I love."
    1914

    Oka River

    Oka River
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Oka is the largest right tributary of the Volga. It flows through the regions of Oryol, Tula, Kaluga, Moscow, Ryazan, Vladimir, and Nizhny Novgorod. It is navigable over a large part of its total length, as far upstream as to the town of Kaluga.
    Its length exceeds 1,500 kilometres. Moscow sits on one of the Oka's tributaries—the Moskva River.
    Cruises from Moscow to Nizhny Novgorod are very popular in Russia.
    Konstantinovo is among the most interesting places which you will be able to visit when having such a cruise.

    You can watch my high resolution photo of Konstantinovo on the Google Earth according to the following coordinates 54° 52' 1.65" N 39° 36' 8.67" E or on my Google Earth Panoramio Oka River.

    Konstantinovo village

    Favorite thing: Konstantinovo village is about 300 years old. It was mentioned first time in 1619 when it was the property of the Romanovs family. In several decades it was presented to Volkonsky and Myshetsky notable families.
    It’s famous in Russia because the most Russian poet Sergey Yesenin was born there. Thousands of pilgrims are coming here every year to watch a place where Yesenin spent his childhood and young years…

    Sky and Expanse

    Favorite thing: Konstantinovo is situated at the very high bank of the Oka river. A view from the hill to an open space is fascinating, ecpecially for city-dweller. It is not strange that people here become poets.

    Museum of the Poem "Anna Snegina"

    Kashin's Estate

    Favorite thing: This is one of the 7 museums of literary works in the world. This house was an estate of Kashin, whose daughter Lidia was a prototype of Anna Snegina.

    Fondest memory: "...
    I passed through the overgrown orchard,
    A lilac bough brushed against
    My cheek, sweet memories were brought back
    By the sight of the tumbledown fence.
    It was here by that very gate standing
    That a lad of sixteen or so
    Heard a girl in a snow-white mantle
    In accents caressing say "No!".
    Those dear long-gone years! Her image is
    As bright now as ever it was...
    So much love we had then for others,
    But others had little for us
    ...."

    Local Church

    by Pablos_new Written May 15, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The belltower of this church was completely ruined in soviet times and was reconstructed only in 2001. As for interior it is still very poor - all under construction, but I think it is a matter of few years. It seems that in soviet times the building was used as a warehouse.
