This book is expository and is in Russian (sample English translation of two pages is given). It is shown how in the course of solution of interesting geometric problems (close to applications) naturally appear different notions of curvature, which distinguish given geometry from the 'ordinary' one. Direct elementary definitions of these notions are presented. The book is accessible for students familiar with analysis of several variables, and could be an interesting easy reading for professional mathematicians. The material is presented as a sequence of problems, which is peculiar not only to Zen monasteries but also to serious mathematical education.
