September, 8 – Natalia’s Day!

Natalya’s day – September, 8th – is one of the important family holidays. Almost every generation of Polenovs family has at least one Natalya. Back in the 19th century, the local tradition of this day was to create “magic lanterns” – real works of art.  We keep the collection of lanterns, made by Elena Anatolyevna Polenova (1927 – 2016), granddaughter of Vasily Dmitrievich, and by September 8 we always make new ones.

Welcome to Polenovo!
