The Map of Historical and Cultural Heritage of the Small Siberian City of Yalutorovsk was Published for the First Time
For the first time, a map of the historical and cultural heritage of Yalutorovsk, a small historical town located in the south of the Tyumen region, has been published.
The city is known as the place of exile of the Decembrists, and the Yalutorovo Decembrist community, consisting of nine people (including M.I. Muravyov-Apostol, I.I. Pushchin, I.D. Yakushkin) was considered one of the largest and most cohesive in Siberia. S.I. Mamontov, one of the most famous Russian patrons of the arts, was born here. The son of the Yalutorovsky merchant A.N. Balakshin became the founder of the Union of Siberian Butter-making Artels – one of the largest cooperative structures of tsarist Russia. The city is also known for its program for the preservation and use of cultural heritage, which has been implemented since the second half of the 1990s.
The map shows all the cultural heritage sites of the town, other attractions, cultural institutions, tourist and social infrastructure facilities. A list of all the marked objects with their brief characteristics is given, as well as a detailed historical information about the town. Such an information publication about the city was released for the first time.
Employees of the Centre for Regional Programmes of Social and Cultural Development of the Institute for Social Policy, cartographers of Moscow and local historians of Yalutorovsk worked on the map with the support of the city administration and the Charitable Foundation for the Promotion of Culture named after Savva Mamontov.
The paper was prepared in the framework of a research grant funded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation (grant ID: 075-15-2020-928). Scientific project "Atlas of Cultural Heritage"
