Winter and snow in Soviet cartoons

While looking for inspiration to consolidate and upgrade my “Winter is the Soul of Russia” travel proposal (now scattered across several places:,, etc.) I noticed an exhibition of cartoons and movies dedicated to winter and snow.

Exhibition dates: Dec. 20 to Feb.  10 2013. Location: Solyanka Gallery, Ulitsa Solyanka 1/2, stoyeniye 2, entrance from Ulitsa Zabelina, nearest Metro Kitay-Gorod.  It is by the monument in memory of children who died in the Beslan hostage crisis in September 2004(?) that ended with the Russian military bursting in using tanks and flame rockets.


Gallery’s site: (Russian only).  Checking the site.. the gallery seems to be largely oriented towards children.

Tel.: (495) 621 5572 and 628 4109.

I’m putting the Solyanka Gallery on the list of places to visited.  You are welcomed to join.  By default Wednesdays is my going out day.

Something to add?
