In 2016 the greatest Tatar poet Gabdulla Tuqay turns 130!
Past Kazan into the country
There’s a village called Kurlai.
In that village even hens cluck.
God alone could tell you why.
Even though I was not born there,
For a while it was my home.
There in spring I tilled and harrowed,
In the autumn reaped the loam.
I recall in all directions
Lay the backwood’s broad delight.
Grasslands there of glossy velvet
Dazzled everybody’s sight.
On 19 February 2016, the exhibition “Ibn Fadlan's Journey: Volga Route from Baghdad to Bulghar” opened in the Hermitage–Kazan Centre.
