At the end of April, the Russian Embassy in Vietnam and the Russian Center of Science and Culture in Hanoi hosted events dedicated to the history and culture of our country. Several hundred compatriots and interested citizens visited the exhibitions of the Russian Geographical Society "Nikolai Mikhailovich Przhevalsky: A Journey of a Lifetime" and "The Most Beautiful Country".

The exhibition dedicated to Nikolai Przhevalsky is timed to the 185th anniversary of the birth of the great Russian traveler, geographer, explorer of Central Asia, whose scientific achievements had a huge impact on the development of geography and related sciences around the world. Visitors to the exhibition saw the scientist's diaries, photographs and letters from his travels as well as pencil sketches of birds and animals of Central Asia made during the expeditions.
