Protected areas of Russia will present their ethnographic routes at the festival in Moscow
The festival of indigenous peoples of Russia "Ethnoscope-2023" will be held in Moscow on December 1-3 as part of the exhibition of travel and equipment for active recreation "Let's go." The event will take place for the third time.
Guests can expect to meet famous Russian travelers, experts, employees of the reserve system, as well as get acquainted with the traditions and life of the indigenous peoples of Russia. This was announced on its website by the Roszapovedtsentr of the Russian Ministry of Natural Resources, which will present its thematic program at the festival for the first time. It is aimed at popularizing the preservation of the cultural heritage of indigenous peoples in protected areas, stimulating interest in protected areas and developing ecotourism.
Employees of protected areas from different regions of the country will speak to festival guests, talk about the unique attractions of protected areas, the traditions of indigenous peoples, present ethnographic routes, and conduct thematic quizzes and master classes.
“Traveling along ethnographic routes is an opportunity to discover the diversity of the country’s cultural riches, get acquainted with unique crafts, visit national museums, take part in folk festivals, hear traditional motifs, and try national cuisine. The country’s reserves and national parks are ready to offer all this to tourists, which carefully preserve not only the natural, but also the historical and cultural riches of Russia,” said the head of the Roszapovedtsentr Daria Matsuk, whose words are quoted in the message.
As experts note, the ethnographic wealth of the Russian reserve system is very great, but at the same time it has not yet been sufficiently studied. Thus, only in the Udege Legend National Park (Primorsky Territory) about 30 archaeological monuments of various historical eras are registered, ranging from Stone Age sites to medieval settlements.
