Singing metal

From the 10th to the 13th of August in Ulyanovsk took place the first International festival of blacksmith’s art «Singing metal». More than 80 masters of artistic forging from 15 Russian cities and CIS countries gathered at the festival.

The main event of the festival «Singing metal» was installation of a wind organ, which was made by blacksmiths for four days. Its creators haven’t heard the sound of this organ, because the day was windless and they didn’t install necessary strings. But this modern composition perfectly fitted in the city space. The unique characteristic of the wind organ is original autographs which were left on it by blacksmiths. Every one who took part in its creation forged the name of his city or forgery. So, the organ became a present for citizens of our city. Ulyanovsk citizens say that it is one of the best monuments of the city for the last ten years.


City Day

On the 12th of June - on its birthday - the city appears before Ulyanovsk citizens clean, renovated, and sparkling with happiness and hope for future prosperity. The City Day is an original symbol of the unity of different generations of Ulyanovsk citizens. This day is celebrated at the same time as the main state holiday - Independent Day of Russia; this is also a symbolic fact, because the history of Simbirsk-Ulyanovsk is inseparably connected with the Russian history.
