In Ryazan, we have mushrooms with eyes

“And in Ryazan we have mushrooms with eyes, they eat, and they look.” Who first came up with this verse is unknown. Historians attribute his authorship to local residents who, by the knocked-down hats of mushrooms in the forest, learned that recently, enemy combat detachments passed here. That is, the plants were peculiar eyes for the Russian land, which was constantly subjected to raids by the wild horde. Some historians say that Moscow boyars, scornful of the city, tried to belittle its significance. Like, except mushrooms there is nothing worthwhile.

And the Ryazans loved the cheerful and mischievous rhyme so much that they even dedicated a monument to him in the city park. The sculpture "Mushrooms with eyes" was mounted and installed on the day of the city. The monument became an adornment of the city park. His visit today brings pleasure to all guests of the city. The monument includes not only the main characters (mushrooms that look), but also other inhabitants of the forest. Now it is a kind of national brand. Having become popular, it attracts numerous tourists from other regions to the region. They come together in search of unusual forest creatures with eyes and a rich harvest.
