The IV Festival Marathon “From the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean” was launched in Perm on April 22, 2019. The event, which takes place under the auspices of the Federation Council and with the support of the Federal Agency Rossotrudnichestvo, began on the border of Europe and Asia with the opening of a photo exhibition and a concert of children’s ensembles of Perm.

The photo exhibition consists of works submitted as part of the photo contest “World Heritage Objects through the Eyes of Photographers.” Participants from all over the world sent photos of cultural, natural and intangible heritage sites, captured in various countries – from Spain to China.

The concert, in turn, reflected the main slogan of the IV Marathon “Preservation of Historical and Cultural Values” and demonstrated the cultures of the peoples and countries that participate in the Marathon 2019: Russia, Spain, Bulgaria, Serbia, France and Japan.
