The author of this park is a wood-carver, folk craftsman, a talented person, Russian artist and sculptor Pavel Pavlovich Bezrukov. He was born in 1890 in Eisk, Russia. According to those who knew him, from a young age he loved the poetry of Alexander Pushkin and remained true to this love to the end of his days. Meanwhile, he even called his daughters by “Pushkin’s” name – Tatyana and Olga. “In my case – said Pavel Pavlovich, – the artist was nature itself, I just had to tweak it to highlight in one or the other way …” The park has become a kind of museum of floral sculptures in the open.
Gradually, the popularity of the “field” grew. Sculptural works have come from Simferopol, Kiev, Zhitomir, Moscow and Pervouralsk. In creating the exhibition, “Glade of Fairy Tales” took an active part Yalta artists. Currently, the “Glade of Fairy Tales,” has over 200 exhibits representing the work of 47 authors.

In addition to the traditional tours, conducted by the museum, it includes a live performance with Baba Yaga, and operates during the summer open-air theater, where you can view every hour clowns, pirates, mermaids, and puppet show.
