The full-scale historical and cultural festival the Hanseatic Days of New Time was opened in Pskov on the 27th of June. The holiday gathered delegations from 88 Russian towns and 11 countries of Europe. Craftspeople and artists of the regional House of crafts are representing Yamal. They are holding different master-classes on folk crafts and participating in the full-scale fair of craftspeople.
According to the information given to a correspondent of the news agency “Sever-Press” in the regional House of crafts, the Hansa festival is a good opportunity for the arctic region to present its historical, cultural and tourist potential at the European level. The craftspeople from Yamal will be able to show their products and to arrange business contacts with representatives of companies and exhibition centers from other regions of the country.
During almost 40-year history of conducting of the international Hanseatic Days this festival has taken place in Russia only for the second time. Veliky Novgorod was the first Russian city that hosted the Hanseatic Days 10 years ago.
