A photo exhibition "Traveling in Russia. 360 °" will be opened at the Tolmachevo International Airport.

Airport passengers can, without leaving the terminal, be carried to the most beautiful places in Russia - fly over the urias' nests on the Kola Peninsula, see how clouds form on Ai-Petri Mountain in Crimea, dive to visit ringed seals in the Sea of Okhotsk, hear how gray whales sing.



This opportunity will be provided by the film "Russia. Virtual Travel", shot using the panoramic video technology. It is an 8-minute diary of a traveler who addresses a resident of a modern metropolis. Talking about personal experience, the main character inspires to study Russia and travel through it.

The film is a joint project of the RGS and "Otkritie" Bank. Its premiere took place at the IV Festival of the Russian Geographical Society in Moscow in September 2019. Then the film was seen and appreciated by thousands of people, including President of the Russian Geographical Society Sergey Shoigu, Chairman of the Federation Council Valentina Matvienko, Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration, Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

For the sake of unique shots, the film crew of the project visited the Putorana Plateau and the Far East, the Volga Delta and Dagestan. Participants climbed into the mountains, descended into the water, walked tens of kilometers. The photographs taken by the film crew are the basis of the photo exhibition "Traveling in Russia. 360 °".
