The road to “Archstoyanie” name unearthed art-objects

Nikola-Lenivets of the Kaluga region is already the eleventh year associated with the famous “Archstoyanie” — a unique festival of landscape objects, which gathers artists, architects, musicians, artists and art lovers from around the world. Artpark in Nikola-Lenivets, in fact, is unique in the world, being filled not only the large-scale structures, but with a philosophy and atmosphere of creativity. But to get to the Park, you’ll be tormented for the last 30 km of the road: the road is divided outrageously. That, of course, does not fit with the world status of the forum.

So, everyone who goes on favorite festival every year (and the regulars of “Archstoyanie” has thousands), you know that the first on the road from Moscow flying with the wind, but the last 30-40 miles — like after the bombing. Go maximum 40 km/h, circling the holes and bumps. And the only advice here is to take your car with high ground clearance.

Social media filled with enthusiastic feedback about the festival, but as a fly in the ointment… “did You see the way in which it is necessary to crawl, to kill the suspension, potholes, speed bumps? Her twenty years nobody repaired. Write, it’s wonderful, yeah, there cool, but to get there it… the horror. The magnificence of these places down the drain!”, — said Andrew, and, of course, many agree with him.

For example, Marina, who visited the children’s series “Archstoyanie” in June of this year: “Before you go think well. 200 km from Moscow — not far, but 30 km to the destination, the road is TERRIBLE. On it I rode 1.5 hours, the car had a low and rubber runflat fought on every hole. The beautiful nature, forests, fields, a river in which to bathe. But the mood drops, when I go back… If you don’t mind the car or you have a tank, the emotions will be better.” And indeed, slowly trudge along the broken piece you will be from one hour to one and a half.

Alas, in the near future, due to various commercial and administrative reasons, the road will not be done. It is not a transit but is, in fact, a dead end, and for a couple of villages with 60 houses, no huge investments will not go. And the festival… the festival has recently lost its state subsidies, and now can only rely on private investment.

In addition, according to rumors, in the vicinity of the killed piece are 2-3 sand quarry, which, obviously, is a tough technique. And even if the road was patched, through the season again it will break the massive trucks. What to do?

Wait. While “Archstoyanie”, acquired over the years a serious authority has completed her conversion in terms of legal status. And only then it will be possible to ask for something from the authorities.
