“Grenada – Island of Spice” photo exhibition opens in Moscow

Celebration event took place on October 2 at the embassy of Grenada.

In the minds of most people, Grenada remains a mystery, although in reality it is much closer than it seems. Moreover, in September 2019, Russia and Grenada celebrated the fortieth anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, which means it’s time to get to know this magical country closer.

To celebrate this milestone, National Geographic Russia magazine, together with the Embassy of Grenada in the Russian Federation, organized a photo exhibition “Grenada – Island of Spice.” The exposition, consisting of 50 photographs, clearly tells about this idyllic corner with a special culture, nature, national cuisine and history.

Known to Europeans since the beginning of the 17th century, seemingly carefree and cheerful, over the years of its existence, Grenada has gone through a difficult history of numerous political upheavals and interventions. Therefore, the culture of Grenada was the result of the influence of both European and African traditions, languages ​​and religions, pulsating in the rhythm of calypso.

Despite its small area, Grenada is considered one of the most beautiful places on earth: due to its tropical climate and volcanic origin, evergreen forests with valuable tree species are spread here, and the cleanest beaches, lakes and waterfalls are preserved in their original pure form. It was in Grenada that the world’s first underwater sculpture park was created, founded by Jason Taylor.

The exposition opened on the territory of the embassy of Grenada on October 2, and on October 7 it will move to Nikolskaya street in the centre of Moscow.

Welcoming speeches were made by the editor-in-chief of National Geographic Traveler Ivan Vasin, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Grenada to the Russian Federation Oleg Firer, as well as Deputy Director of the Latin American Department of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Alexei Labetskiy.

The event was held in the form of a mini-festival: the mood of the Caribbean carnival was created by the fiery performances of the International Band and artists of the Samba Real drum show. The highlight of the event was the performance of the charming singer Jenny Jeremiah, who specially flew to Moscow on this occasion.

The exhibition opened on Nikolskaya Street, Building 4, from October 7 and runs until October 30. Admission is free, working hours are around the clock.
