On October 18, 1738, Andrei Timofeevich Bolotov was born – a Russian writer, memoirist, philosopher-moralist, scientist, botanist and forester, one of the founders of agronomy and pomology in Russia. He made a great contribution to the recognition of tomatoes and potatoes as agricultural crops in Russia.

His name is inextricably linked with the Tula Bogoroditsk, where he equipped the estate park, and with the Zaoksky district, where the genius of agronomy lived and worked.

“And even though I missed the best days for shooting, it’s worth sharing some corners of the park, especially since today is the birthday of Andrei Timofeevich Bolotov (1738-1833), a nobleman from Dvoryaninov, a famous ruler of the Mother of God and a wonderful Russian man!” his page Evgeny Kachurin, ethnographer and photographer of the city of Bogoroditsk.
