Gogol and Poltava. The genius writer and the land that gave birth to him
all this is engraved not only on the souls of
Ukrainians, but also on the souls of all admirers of Nikolai Gogol's
writings. It's very symbolic that the great satirist was born on the 1st of April. Therefore it is impossible not to mention the author of such unfading works as Vechera na Khutore bliz Dikan'ki
(Evenings on Homestead near Dikanka), Revizor (The Inspector General), Myortvye Dushi
(Dead Souls) and many other genius writings, which became classic during Gogol's life and brought him International
fame. Among them is a famous Nos (Nose). That's why the official prize in the nomination Gogol's World is
The Gold Nose. This nomination has become the main theme of the international Cartoon Contest
