The first 235 items were prepared specially for the opening of the Parade of Tulips.
Also, a new project will be launched in the garden on the specified day. It is the gallery of portraits of all the legendary directors and employees of the NBG. The portrait of Professor Konstantin Klimenko, who would have been 110 years old in May, will be mounted the first. The opening will take place during the Parade of Tulips.
“We want our guests walking through the parks to see the faces of those to whom we owe all that beauty. This project, which we called People. Events. Time, is our love confession to gorgeous scientists who have made a huge contribution into the Russian science,” explained Yu. Plugatar.
Performances of dance groups and musicians are also planned for guests of the Parade of Tulips.
The next day, April 18, a new exhibition of paintings will open at the art gallery of the NBG.
To remind, 80 thousand tulip bulbs of 235 varieties were planted in the Nikitsky Botanical Garden this year. Mass flowering was expected on April 15. However, because of the extended cold weather only one third of the flowers blossomed by April 10.
