Siberian Cats Park, Tyumen

#Nature / Park, #Must See
Dedicated to Tyumen's fearless felines, Siberian Cats Park commemorates one of the city's contributions to Russia during World War II. As the siege of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) starved the citizens of Russia's second city in the West, cats began to disappear as people captured and ate them just to stay alive. This caused an explosion in the rat population there, threatening food supplies and the priceless national treasures of the Hermitage Museum. Visit this memorial park and see the gold-plated cats representing those that were shipped from Tyumen to St. Petersburg to help hunt down rats and protect the nation's most precious artifacts from destruction. The site teaches that although the cats hardly had a say, the several hundred that made the journey played a huge role in Russia's postwar cultural recovery.

  • Not for the first time learn about the native of Tyumen from foreigners and visitors. And this time, being at a meeting in Houston, one venerable lady asked: "is it true that you have in Tyumen in Siberia, in the Centre of the town there is a monument to cats?". Fortunately this monument and its origins in 2017 year I opened a delegation from Moscow, so I gave an affirmative answer. Dear countrymen learn our history, discover and share your knowledge! Knowledge of its history not only useful to us, but also a matter of respect for our guests!
