The Russian Geographical Society exhibition "The Most Beautiful Country" will open in the gallery of the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Belgrade on February 22. The exposition is organized by the Center of the Russian Geographical Society in Serbia and is timed to the Board of Trustees of the Center meeting.
The display has the works of winners and finalists of the RGS photo contest "The Most Beautiful Country" of different years. Guests of 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 Russia - from the Kaliningrad Region to the Kamchatka Region, from the Murmansk Region to the Republic of Dagestan. Many shots were taken in hard-to-reach places in protected areas.
It should be noted that the RGS Center in Serbia has been engaged in the popularization of geography, environmental protection, educational and research activities, and the preservation of the historical and cultural heritage of Russia and Serbia since its establishment in 2016. Thus, there are held exhibitions of photographs of the RGS contest "The Most Beautiful Country", summer interns for Russian students, screenings of films produced with the support of the Society. Also, RGS Geographical Dictation venues operate under the auspices of the Center.
