    The Pyatimors are worthy successors of the feat of their fathers and grandfathers. A park like theirs is not just a decoration of the village, but a sign of a high spiritual level of the authorities and residents. The noble deed of Alexander Mikhailovich Glukhov is a vivid confirmation of this. "Park of Russian History" in the village of Pyatimorsk is a very good example for imitation of large and small towns and villages Russia!
