The Most Beautiful Country exhibition organized by the Russian Geographical Society with support of the Russian Embassy in Buenos Aires was opened in Argentina. The exposition at the Legislative Assembly in La Plata, Buenos Aires province, includes 50 works by the III Most Beautiful Country participants.

Until November 2, visitors can admire Russia’s landscapes (from Crimea to Kamchatka), learn the traditions of the peoples of this country, see rare wild animals, “dive” underwater and explore the deep sea landscapes and depths of mysterious caves.

Russian trade representative in Argentina Sergey Derkach, head of Rossotrudnichestvo in Buenos Aires Olga Muratova, Chairman of the Federation of Cultural Institutions of Immigrants from Russia, Belarus and Ukraine Alejandro Strasak and other public and political figures were the first to visit the exhibition. University students, journalists and Russian compatriots also enjoyed the exposition.

It should be pointed out that this September the exhibition took place in Buenos Aires. As in La Plata, the exhibition in the capital of Argentina was opened by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Russian Federation Dmitry Feoktistov. He stressed the exceptional importance of the exhibition in the year of the decade of the strategic partnership between Russia and Argentina. According to him, such cultural projects strengthen friendship between peoples and bring continents closer.

The “Most Beautiful Country” photo contest 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. Now submissions for the V Most Beautiful Country photo contest are open.
