Visitors of the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Bucharest can get acquainted with Tuvan shamans, Dagestan mountaineers, indigenous people of the tundra and northern taiga. The exhibition of the Russian Geographical Society "Rites, holidays and customs of the peoples of Russia" opened in the capital of Romania on December 6.
The exhibition includes 19 photographs of the participants of the annual RGS photo contest "The Most Beautiful Country", showing the life of the indigenous and small population of Russia. In one of the picture, photographer Mark Podrabinek captured the sacred rite of the Tuvan shaman's rite on the holy mountain Mongun Taiga. In the focus of Yevgeny Golosyuk is the traditional custom of the Ivan Kupala holiday: the girls tell fortunes by their betrothed, blowing field wreaths on the river. But in the photo of Magomed Magomedov is the amazing scene - there is the highlanders celebrate the birth of a son in one of the ancient Dagestan auls.
The exhibition in Bucharest will last until January 15, 2019.
Let us recall that currently the exhibition “The Most Beautiful Country” also takes place in the Vorontsovo manor. Expositions of the RGS contest work not only in the capital, but “The Most Beautiful Country” travels to regions of Russia and foreign countries. You can get acquainted with all the exhibitions here.
The photo contest "The Most Beautiful Country" is a media project of the Russian Geographical Society. The competition is dedicated to the preservation of Russian wildlife and the promotion of solicitous attitude to the environment. It was held in 2015 for the first time. About 400 thousand pictures have been uploaded to the project site photo.rgo.ru for 4 years. The rules of creative competition are not limited by age and place of residence of participants. The main condition is that the territory of Russia should be captured in the photos. Exhibitions of the photo contest participants are regularly held in our country and abroad.
