Russian Geographical Society

One of the oldest public organizations in Russia. The Russian Geographical Society (RGS) was founded by the highest command of Nicholas I in 1845. In different years the RGS was headed by representatives of the Russian Imperial House, scientists and statesmen. The RGS has made a significant contribution to the study of the European part of Russia, the Urals, Siberia, the Far East, Central and Central Asia, the Caucasus, Iran, India, New Guinea, polar countries and other territories.
At the RGS stand you will be able to visit the most picturesque corners of Russia, see unique artifacts from the RGS expeditions and get acquainted with outstanding travelers.
Thanks to VR-technologies, the visitors to the stand will find themselves on a tour led by Alexander Kolchak, and Pyotr Semyonov-Tyan-Shansky will tell about his adventures in the Altai and Central Asia. The audience will be able to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the historic Headquarters of the Russian Geographical Society in St. Petersburg and learn more about the scientific and expeditionary projects of the RGS.
Fascinating landscapes, the amazing world of wild animals, spectacular natural phenomena - you will be able to see the most impressive things found in the nature of Russia on the interactive map, where the works of the participants of the RGS photo contest "The Most Beautiful Country" will be presented.
Another way to get acquainted with Russia's unique natural and cultural heritage is a puzzle map. With its help you will be able to test your knowledge of the Russian geography.
The movie theater will show clips from RGS expeditions, as well as films about great Russian explorers.
Every year RGS issues dozens of publications, and you can learn about them with the help of an interactive book.
As a souvenir of your visit to the exposition, don't forget to take a photo with rare animals cared for by the Russian Geographical Society, as well as to take a print of an ornament from the ancient Triumphal Arch of Palmyra, which is being restored with the active participation of the RGS.
We wish you a pleasant journey through the world of the Russian Geographical Society and offer you to discover Russia anew. Together!
