The exhibition of the Russian Geographical Society "The Most Beautiful Country" was opened in the Media Center of the Moscow Zaryadye Park. Residents and guests of Moscow will be able to admire the velvet slopes of the Urals, Altai open spaces, the beauty of Eastern Sayan and other unique shots until May 26.
70 photographs are included in the large-scale exposition. There are images of finalists and winners of the 4th RGS photo contest "The Most Beautiful Country". There is the flight of a titmouse on one of them. Viktor Tyaht managed to catch the moment when its feathers began to sparkle in the sun with all the colors of the rainbow. Wolverine got into Arthur Mukhametova's shot, as if blocking the path of the photographer. And in the picture of Nikolay Stepanenko - the Christian Shoana Church in Karachay-Cherkessia, sinking in the rays of a purple sunset and a thick foggy haze.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to get acquainted with the traditions of the indigenous peoples of Russia, see rare animals, explore the mysterious caves and the depths of the sea. The geography of the shooting covers most regions of our country - from the Kaliningrad region to the Kamchatka region, from the Murmansk region to the Republic of Dagestan. Many photos were taken in hard-to-reach places in protected areas.
Also, at the moment the exhibitions "The Most Beautiful Country" are also held in several countries around the world. The exhibition, which includes the best photos of Russia, opened in Romania and Slovenia.
