LUZHITSI, a village in Kingisepp District. Population: 82. Located on the bank of the Luzhitsa River. First mentioned in the 1499/1500 Rent Census Book of Vodskaya Pyatina. In the 20th c., it integrated the villages of Nizhniye Luzhitsi, Glinki, and Peski. The residents of L. belong to the Vod, a small-numbered ethnic community. The “Luzhitsi Clubbing” festival of Vod culture has been held annually since 2000, featuring folklore groups of Leningrad Oblast and St. Petersburg. The festival was initiated by local resident T. V. Yefimova. With her active involvement, exhibits for establishment of a Vod ethnic museum have been collected since 1997 (its building burned down in 2002, and the exposition is currently being restored.) In 2005, the noncommercial organization “Vod Culture Society” was registered in L.
