June 4, 2009. Tornado strikes the museum

Late at night on June 3 the Pereslavl region was struk by a hurricane, accompanied by tornado, a very rare phenomenon in Central Russia. The forest round Talitsy was heavily destroyed. Five houses in Kupanskoye village were ruined, more houses received serious damage. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

For nearly two days Talitsy village and the museum were cut off from the World, as the forest road was blocked with fallen trees. Only at 14-00 on June 5 the road to Talitsy was finally cleared with the efforts of museum team and local contractors. It took several more days to restore electric and telephone connection.

The museum operates to regular timetable.
