“Ust-Tsilemsky Gorka on Peter’s day”

 The event ethnographic tour

Season: July

Accommodation: local resident’s cottages

Meals: breakfast, dinner, supper

 In Ust-Tsilma they say: “The hill is red because of sarafans when there are hundred in a circle and hundred out of a circle”. And it this is not surprising, after more than five hundred years the Krasnaja gorka remains the main ceremonial holiday of Ust-Tsilma inhabitants. According to Russian specialists in folklore, this is a place where the unique holiday of the prehaying round dances has remained up to our time. In the Soviet power days the Old Believer of Ust-Tsilma had to sustain many things: church books burning, icons requisitioning and they transformed church into cinema. But despite everything, the centuries-old traditions of ancestors remained, and today Ust-Tsilma became a new source of spiritual values for whole Russia where the unique old believe Russian culture has remained.
