The Cubans will get acquainted with unknown Russia. An exhibition of the Russian Geographical Society, The Most Beautiful Country, has opened in the Museum of the Revolution in Havana.
The exhibition includes 27 photographs by The Most Beautiful Country 2017 finalists and winners. For example, a photo by Vladimir Alekseev shows a lonely fir-tree rising above the snow-white space against the sunset sky. Vladislav Sokolovskiy captured Altai Lake Dzhangyskol with the snow-covered mountains peaks reflected in its water. A photograph of Yuri Sorokin shows a quiet November morning: trees covered with frost seem frozen in the rays of the rising sun.
City residents and guests, public figures, students and university professors visited the exhibition opening. The fox between the dry hogweed stems (by Denis Budkov) and the Kid with a husky puppy (photo by Dmitry Arkhipov) became ones of the most discussed photographs.
José Perez Kintana, the director of the Revolution Museum expressed his confidence that the photographic exhibition of the Russian Geographical Society was one of the most prominent events held together with the Representative Office of Rossotrudnichestvo.
The exhibition in Havana will run until December 13.
It should be mentioned that at the moment The Most Beautiful Country exhibitions are open in several countries around the world: in Malta, France, Israel, Slovenia and Moldova.
