On clear September days, the "Antonov apples" festival covers the whole city of Yelets. The Gymnasium Ball bursts out over the city park, couples walk along the alleys of the Noble Garden, and fragrant Antonovka apples are sold on Orlovskaya Street. Evening of Russian romance songs, plein airs, photo studio and literature presentations wait for you there. It’s like Ivan Alekseevich Bunin himself returns for two days to his beloved city.
