Why did this dish become a hero of such a bright celebration?
Now we will tell you about it:
From the moment of its formation fishing was one of the main and the most popular crafts on the island of Sviyazhsk. Since the XVI century this activity has been considered as one of the most profitable ones among the inhabitants of the island. Most often the networks of local fishermen were filled with breams. It was this fish which has become one of the symbols of the island and has been honored to be a part of the Sviyazhsk emblem.
As we can see, fishing has been and still remains the important part of the local population life. Its value was so great that during the fish spawning there was no bell ring in the city around the river. So, it is not surprising that since the ancient times the island old residents have been sharing the secrets of cooking this flavorful dish – ukha – to the younger generation. We offer you not just to see the delicious festival, but also to become its participants, cooks, tasters and just active viewers!
