The sunny landscapes of Ingushetia, the velvet slopes of the Urals and the mountain ranges of the Eastern Sayans arrived in the capital of Poland - the exhibition of the Russian Geographical Society "The Most Beautiful Country" opened in Warsaw. The exhibition awaits visitors in the Russian Center for Science and Culture.
The exposition includes 22 photographs - there are pictures of the participants of the annual RGS photo contest "The Most Beautiful Country". Among them are a cowardly brown hare, who, hearing the crunch of snow, peeped out from under the snow cover. Dmitry Merkulov managed to capture it for a few moments before the animal disappeared into the nearby forest. The other photo shows a little boy, a local resident of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District. Svetlana Gorbatykh managed to convey every detail of his face - from rosy cheeks to snowflakes on eyelashes. And in the photo of Andrei Gilyov, two small owls are looking at the sunset from their nest on the roof of the house, remaining under its protection.
The exhibition will have been lasting till April 12.
