The Golden TurtleThe Golden Turtle is the largest international eco-cultural educational project carried out in Russia. It started off as a wildlife photo competition, but now it includes art as well.
The opening ceremony will held at the
Museum of Moscowwww.mosmuseum.ru on the
27th of Februaryand the exhibition will be on until the 5th of April. After that, the exhibition will go on tour to different cities in Russia. I have unfortunately no details about the places the tour will be held, should I be able to find out more I add this information later.
So, I have been invited to the opening ceremony on the 27th of February, and yes, I'm going! My visa has just arrived. Too late to chicken out. I will be in Moscow from the 26th of Feb. - 1st of March.
I am a bit worried, especially as I can neither speak nor read Russian, and I hope the political situation won't spoil a festival which is held for a good cause. I considered this an opportunity which will not come back soon, so I decided to go. Maybe some of you are going to the opening ceremony as well? (I know of a couple of artists friends who were invited too and first said they were going. They encouraged me to join them, but they have since chickened out! ...not naming anyone, but booo!)
Any suggestions what to see/visit when I'm in Moscow? Of course, there is the obvious: Red Square, The Cathedral of Vasily (Saint Basil's Cathedral), and the Moscow metro. I found as well a museum for calligraphy which I would like to see.
