The Young Pioneer camp Artek and its visitors

The All-Union Pioneer Camp Artek, which is now the International Children’s Center Artek, opened in Crimea 85 years ago. Artek was founded as a camp for children suffering from tuberculosis following a proposal made by Zinovy Solovyev, the chairman of the Russian Red Cross Society.
