First nightwatch pipe was invented in Kholmogory, and the perfectly equipped observatory was located in the local belltower.

Kholmogory of the XVII century is the international naval port which was often visited by the english, holland and norman ships. It became a center for the international news, tendencies, technologies, trade operations. Different languages were spoken in Kholmogory, people had best coffee here, smoked best tobacco and invented new inventions.

Holmgard — that is the Kholmogory name in Scandinavian sagas is the former cultural center of the Zavolochie and the Center of the Dvina Region. Englishmen had their own sites in Kholmogory, given to them by the tzar himself and many other good places for their own convenience.

The largest bonecarvers community among the Russian northern territories is settled in Lomonosovo (former Denisovka). The most contemporary (at that time) english sawmills were based in Vavchuga.

The main aim of our project "Lomonosovo Island" is to remind about these stories, visit some of them and get support for the rest.
