Anton Chekhov Memorial Events Held in Taganrog

July 15, 2020 - The home city of Anton Chekhov paid tribute to 116 years since the day the world-famous playwright and short-story writer passed away in Badenweiler, Germany.


On this day residents of Taganrog traditionally participate in the flower laying ceremony at the foot of Chekhov monument. In this sense the year 2020 was no exception and the traditional ceremony was held at 10-00 AM in Chekhov Square despite the existing epidemiological situation in the region.


Deputy City Manager for Social Affairs Irina Golubeva, Arts & Culture Council's staff, director and actors of Taganrog Chekhov Drama Theater, museum and library system workers, representatives of Taganrog's literary institutions and residents laid flowers to Chekhov Monument.
