Unique pictures of wild animals, the underwater world, Russia’s natural and cultural attractions have decorated the walls of the Gusev Historic-Cultural Museum named after A.M. Ivanov in the Kaliningrad region. The exhibition of winners and finalists of the III Most Beautiful Country photo contest was opened here.
The Most Beautiful Country is an annual photo contest, one of the most challenging media projects of the Russian Geographical Society. It has been held since 2015 and has attracted thousands of photographers from all over the world who take pictures of Russia’s nature. There are neither age nor location limits to enter the contest. The main condition is that photos submitted to the contest should have been taken in the territory of Russia.
The exhibition presents 32 works in the categories: "Wild animals", "Birds", " Most Beautiful Country. Landscape", "Cultural heritage of Russia", "From sunset to dawn", "Caves of Russia", "Underwater world", " Young photographer".
To take these amazing pictures, photographers had to rise in the air and fall to the depths of the sea, to hunt down animals and birds for hours. And all this is not only to catch the beauty, wealth and diversity of wildlife in Russia, but also to draw attention to environmental problems and the conservation of rare species of animals.
The photo exhibition will run through 28 June, 2018
Address: Kaliningrad region, the City of Gusev, Moskovskaya Ulitsa, 36
