The visitors will see the whole panorama of fairy inhabitants — spiders, lizards, crabs, crocodiles, kikimoras and the Swamp King.

The author required one thousand paper-crafted details to complete the panorama.

Dmitry Prokuntsev began his creative path 16 years ago. He wanted to recreate a rural house in which his grandparents lived, and he had only paper at hand.

The first exposition was opened in 2012. The author was inspired by Alexander Pushkin's poems. They prompted to create a great collection based on “The Tale of Tsar Saltan” and the poem “Ruslan and Ludmila.”
