On Tuesday, October 6, an exhibition of works by the III Most Beautiful Country photo contest participants was opened in the Russian Center for Science and Culture (RCSC) in Ljubljana. Visitors to the exhibition could feel the power of Kamchatka volcanoes and the penetrating cold of the Yamal tundra, see the mysterious village of Dargvas and the architectural ensemble of Kizhi Island, get closer to polar bears and wolverines, and it’s all thanks to unique photos of Russian photographers.
In total, 47 photos from different categories were presented at the exhibition: "Landscape", "Peoples of Russia", "Wild Animals", "Underwater World", "Macroworld", "Caves", and "Cultural Heritage of Russia". Not only did guests of the grand opening admire the photos, but they also visited a chamber concert of St. Petersburg Music House project. Winners of numerous international competitions for young musicians Leonid Baranov (violin) and Alexander Bolotin (piano) performed works of classic-composers: Mozart, Bach, Mussorgsky, Kreisler.
