On November 23rd, at the event-platform "Tablitsa" in Moscow, will be the Nenets Autonomous Okrug Day. The RussiaDiscovery company and the NAO Business Development Center invite residents and guests of the capital to travel to the Far North and get to know the culture of the inhabitants of the Arctic. The event guests will find interesting lectures and master classes, a fashion show from Nenets designers, performances by national creative troupes and much more.
“We want to show travelers the “accessible Arctic”, and dispel the myth of the inaccessibility of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug, show its full tourism potential. Traveling to the Nenets Autonomous Okrug is an opportunity to touch the culture of the indigenous peoples of the Arctic, and also to be inspired to travel to one of the first Russian regions in terms of the scale of untouched nature", says Elena Yermolina, First Deputy General Director of the Center for Business Development of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
The program of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug Day will include three lectures on the natural and cultural features of the region. So, the head of the company "ASMYSL" Natalia Rybalchenko and art director Igor Makovsky will reveal the philosophy of "northern minimalism". Photographer and traveler Svetlana Gorbatykh will share her impressions of a trip to the Far North, where she visited a team of reindeer herders and helped to shepherd deer to a new pasture. And the general director of the travel agency "Red City" Yuri Tyulyubaev will tell how "Close Arctic" will surprise tourists.
"Many people think that the Arctic is a distant white desert, and that ordinary tourists can’t get there. However, the Arctic is much closer and friendlier than many people imagine. The Nenets Autonomous Okrug is proof of that. Just two hours by plane from Moscow - and you are in the world of nomadic reindeer herders, unique landscapes of the tundra, and the northern lights", says Yuri Tyulyubaev.
In addition, the guests of the event can look forward to the songs by Kola Beldy and national dances; a photo zone, where one will be able to take pictures in a real Nenets chum, and in a national costume; a landscape photo exhibition, a fashion show from Nenets designers, and tasting of traditional dishes. The event will be sponsored by the “Red City” tourism company, the Center for Arctic Tourism of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the regional Department of Finance and Economics, and the “My Business” national project.
