Pushkin-inspired Russian theme park to open in 2023

A new Russian theme park inspired by the literary poems and fairy tales of Alexander Sergeyevich Pushkin is being created by Dutch design and production company Jora Vision.

A.S. Pushkin is considered by many to be the greatest Russian poet and the founder of modern Russian literature. His fairy tales, which centre around an imaginary land called "Lukomorye", have entertained children for hundreds of years.

Now, Svetoch, a company based in St Petersburg, has enlisted Jora Vision to work on masterplanning and concept design for every facet of a theme park that will bring the writer's stories to life in a modern and immersive, yet typically Russian, way.

The park will be called Lukomorye, and is expected to open in St Petersburg in 2023.

Jora Vision said its plans contain an indoor area of around 17,000 sq m (55,800sq ft) that consists of three main zones, each offering experiences and attractions based on fantasy places described in Pushkin's stories. These themed settings will be a city, a harbour and a palace.

In addition, a 215,000sq ft (20,000sq m) outdoor area will feature another three zones: the Jarmarka (Russian funfair market), the swan lake, and the magical fairy tale forest.

Among the experiences planned are an immersive walkthrough experience based on Pushkin's life and two dark rides.

"We love unique and meaningful stories, and are excited to harness our skills to bring these local stories to life to an audience which is not yet very familiar with the concept of theme parks and immersive attractions," said Jan Maarten de Raad, CEO at Jora Vision.
