For many reasons, Russia is perhaps not on your immediate to-visit list.

But when some things (weather) warm up and others (politics) cool down, you may be interested to know that there are plans for a theme park inspired by great poet Alexander Pushkin.

Lukomorye is expected to open in St. Petersburg in 2023, reports CLAD, a trade group for architects, designers, and developers.

The designing firm told CLAD that the park will contain an indoor area with a “city,” a “harbor,” and a “palace,” plus an outdoor area with a market, a swan lake, and a fairy-tale forest.

Read more about the real-life Lukomorye here, and whet your appetite for other literary theme parks by checking out Alison Flood’s column in the Guardian, which alerted us to the Pushkin park.
