Krasnodar, 8 June – Yug Times. Since June 1, the Krasnodar region is playing host to Russia’s Ancient Heritage festival.

The festival venues were chosen not by mere chance – they all are connected to the rich historical heritage of the region. Anapa, Gelendzhik, Novorossiysk and Taman one day were sites of ancient Greek city-states. Now it is only the surviving artefacts that can remind us of that remote past.

The opening ceremony of the festival coincided with the beginning of the summer tourist season, because one of the main aims of the festival was to attract more new tourists to the region that will not only sunbathe on the beach but learn the ancient history of their country. Minister of Resorts, Tourism and Olympic Heritage of the Krasnodar region Khristofor Konstantinidi announced the expected number of the visitors of the festival – 50,000 at least.

On June 8, the Intourist Hotel in Krasnodar will be hosting the project called “Palmyra in Time and Space.” Academics of the Russian Geographic Society will present a 3D model of the contemporary state of Palmyra, an ancient city that used to flourish in the territory of what now is Syria. The visitors will be able to see how this ancient monument has changed since the beginning of the armed conflict in that country.

After the festival, the work on popularisation and study of the ancient history of Kuban and Russia will be handed over to another project – the tourist route called The Golden Ring of the Kingdom of Bosporus. It will lie across the Kuban region together with the neighbouring regions, where that mighty ancient state used to be located for over a thousand years.

The Golden Ring will cover the Black and Azov coasts of the Krasnodar region, as well as the Rostov region, Crimea and Sevastopol – altogether 17 ancient citystates.
