During his exile to the South in1820 year Pushkin lived in Gurzuf.

Alexander Pushkin was a great rider. He did horseback riding on a narrow winding road in the tract Artek, where he admired the scenery.

Without fear midday heat, he climbed to the top of Ayu-Dag, hence Pushkin saw our land, "the happy land", where everything is illuminated "light luxury nature."

For the first time the idea of "touching erect a national monument to the poet, for which all Russia, his lost, will be grateful to generous coordially" was made January 29, 1837 V. A. Zhukovsky in a rough Memorandum to Nicholas I . But in this case it was not about the monument, but only on redemption of debt and the conversion of the monument to A. S. Pushkin Mikhailovskoye village.


That's what the writer says I. Novikov in his novel "Pushkin in exile":


"... Leaping over a small river, Pushkin found himself entirely in view of Ayu-Dag. The area was completely deserted. Seemed like forever to her and stay. The entire trip I met only two elderly woodcutter, gleaming in the smile teeth. However, one of them had a gun on his shoulders.
- Hunt?
He just waved his hand.
- What's the name of this land?
- Artec, and, showing teeth, smiling, said
- and in Russian, though as the quail.
Pushkin loved the simple it's a nickname".

For the first time the idea of "touching erect a national monument to the poet, for which all Russia, his lost, will be grateful to generous coordially" was made January 29, 1837 V. A. Zhukovsky in a rough Memorandum to Nicholas I . But in this case it was not about the monument, but only on redemption of debt and the conversion of the monument to A. S. Pushkin Mikhailovskoye village.
