Luhansk is known to all Russian-speaking world as the home city of the outstanding and talented person - Vladimir Dahl, the author of the "Defining Dictionary of the Live Great Russian Language".
Vladimir Dahl was also a surgeon, a sailor, an official, a translator, a public figure, a charitable person, a writer and an ethnographer. He was a close friend of the Great Russian poet Alexander Pushkin.
Although the Dahls stayed in Luhansk till 1805 and left it for Nickolayev when Vladimir was four years old, Vladimir Dahl always considered himself as a native of Luhansk. He chose his literary pen name "Cossack of Luhansk".
No other city where he used to live and work celebrated his birthday on November 22 the way it is done in Luhansk: contests of creative writing among students "My Fellow Countryman", exhibitions and shows.
Vladimir Dahl Literature Museum is one of the popular spots in Luhansk.
