The "Panorama" gallery will host the opening of "The Green View" photo exhibition on December 23.

The photo exhibition will introduce the viewer to the unique and diverse flora and fauna of the Hrodna Forest Landscape Reserve, one of the most ecologically clean places in Belarus.

The exhibition presents forest and meadow ecosystems, rare plants listed in the Red Book of the Republic of Belarus, magical bird's-eye views of spectacular panoramas of the Nioman River and its tributaries, the Chornaja Hancha, Astashanka and Lasasianka Rivers. The Augustow Canal footage will not leave viewers indifferent either.

The authors, Siarhiej Plytkievich, Dzmitry Hurynovich and Natalia and Siarhiej Marozau, share their photographic perspectives on the unique natural sites of Belarus. Their work impresses with its vividness, richness of colours and authenticity of the moments captured, the scale of the panoramas and the diversity of the landscapes.

The photos presented at the exhibition are the result of the fruitful work of the participants of "The Green View" expedition along the rivers of the Hrodna Forest. The main purpose of the exhibition was to draw attention to the nature conservation area, to encourage viewers to cherish and respect the natural heritage of Belarus, and to give them an opportunity to admire it.

Mr Siarhiej Kaliada, head of the Hrodna regional branch of the Republican Tourist-Sports Union, was the initiator of the project-expedition. The exhibition "The Green View" is curated by the well-known Belarusian photographer Siarhiej Plytkievich.

"The Green View" exhibition is on display in Minsk for the first time.

The opening will begin at 5 p.m. at the "Panorama" Gallery (22nd floor).

The price of the exhibition is included in the price of the Observation Deck tour.
Admission is by the library card or by the Social and Cultural Centre ticket.

The exhibition will be on show until March 20, 2022.
The end date of the exhibition may be changed.
