The Lermontov (spa) Connection

The Lermontov Museum in Pyatigorsk

We are all delighted that the curator of the Lermontov Museum in Pyatigorsk is coming to our Russian translation conference and cultural tourism forum in Moffat 20-22 Sept 2013.

Pyatigorsk (Russian: Пятиго́рск) is a city in Stavropol Krai located on the Podkumok River, about 20 kilometers (12 mi) from the town of Mineralnye Vody where there is an international airport and about 45 kilometers (28 mi) from Kislovodsk. Since January 19, 2010, it has been the administrative center of the North Caucasian Federal District of Russia. Population: 142,511 (2010 Census);[3] 140,559 (2002 Census);[5] 129,499 (1989 Census).[6]

Like Moffat, Pyatigorsk - meaning 'five mountains' is a spa.
