The Art Born in a Landfill
We recommend you visiting this attraction with a guide
On the streets of Shuya you can notice unusual and a little rough statues. If you come up to them, you realize that they are made from old barrels, vacuum cleaners, corks and soviet-style chandeliers.
A few years ago this authentic art came from the Kochnevo landfill that is in five kilometers from the town. The idea quickly became popular and now tourists from all over Russia visit the landfill. Moreover, statues made from trash now are in Palekh and Kostroma too.
At the landfill museum you can find Kot Bajun, a mermaid, Alexander Nevsky in a vacuum cleaner cap, Peter the Great with lapels from garment accessories and the only Russian monument to Vasily IV of Russia. Besides statues there are an exhibition of old clocks and a library of dumped books. You can take the one you like for free, just write a review on this place.
