The exhibition “Arctic – Nature, History of Development, Prospects for Development” will be launched in Murmansk Regional Museum of Local Lore.
September 26 in the Murmansk regional museum of local lore (Murmansk, Lenin Ave., 90, 1 floor) will begin the exhibition “Arctic – nature, history of development, Prospects for Development”.
Today, the Northern Sea Route is one of the most promising sea highways connecting the west and east of Eurasia. Russia had to go a long and hard way to conquer the Arctic and master its resources.
The exhibition will introduce visitors to the history of the development of the Arctic and the establishment of the Russian icebreaking fleet. The photos presented by the staff of the World Wildlife Fund will tell you about the nature of the Arctic – harsh, but very fragile and vulnerable. The exhibition also presents photographs taken during the polar expeditions of the 1920s-1930s and in the post-war years of the conquest of northern latitudes by atomic icebreakers that are available only in the fleet of the Russian Federation.
Guests of the museum will also see paintings by Alexander Borisov, Igor Ruban, Boris Vogel, who glorified the beauty of the Arctic on their canvases.
The exhibition will run until November 15.
