An exhibition of photographs by finalists and winners of the III Most Beautiful Country photo contest is now open in St. Petersburg (in the street near the Central Exhibition Hall "Manege"). Residents and guests of the city may enjoy unique pictures of wild animals, underwater world, natural and cultural attractions of Russia. 

The “Most Beautiful Country” is an annual event, a large-scale media project of the Russian Geographical Society aimed at preserving the nature of Russia and promoting an attitude of care towards the environment. It was first held in 2015.

About 400 thousand pictures have been uploaded to the website of the contest for 4 years. 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. Works of photo contest participants are regularly exhibited in Russia and other countries.

Please note that works of participants of the Most Beautiful Country have been successfully exhibited around the world for several years already.  Earlier, photos were exhibited in different galleries and exhibition halls of St. Petersburg, and now the best works can be seen in the open air in the city center. 

The exhibition will run through October 26.

Address: Western facade of the Central Exhibition Hall "Manege", Yakubovich Ulitsa, 6-8
