On February 1, a photo exhibition of the Russian Geographical Society "Discovering Russia Together. Traveling with the Russian Geographical Society" began work on the Old Arbat in Moscow. The open-air exposition is dedicated to tourism and travel in Russia.
The exhibition has 30 photographs taken by photographers in winter. The photos depict the unique natural and cultural attractions of Russia. Thus, visitors to the exhibition will see the Hudozhnikov Lake in the Krasnodar Territory, the Manpupuner Plateau in the Komi Republic, Mount Ai-Petri in the Republic of Crimea, the Rostov Kremlin in the Yaroslavl Region, the "Sheregesh" ski resort in the Kemerovo Region and other picturesque places.
The authors of the photos are Russian photographers, participants in the Russian Geographical Society's photo contest "The Most Beautiful Country". The competition has been held annually since 2015. For six years, tens of thousands of authors have taken part in the contest. They uploaded more than 500 thousand pictures to the website of the project - photo.rgo.ru. Currently, the works are being accepted for the 7th Photo Contest "The Most Beautiful Country".
It should be noted that the Russian Geographical Society is engaged in the development of domestic and inbound tourism in Russia. The Russian Geographical Society develops its own tourist routes and supports interesting tours of Russian tour operators, holds a competition "The Best Guide of Russia", organizes various tourist events.
We invite you to go on a journey and get to know Russia together with the Russian Geographical Society!
