The Norilsk Museum became a platform for the annual action of the Russian Geographical Society.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Despite the limitations, according to the annual tradition, the Norilsk people tested their knowledge of geography, ecology, history and culture of Russia. The test began with easy warm-up questions. For example: “On which river is the Uglich hydroelectric power station located?” There were 40 questions in total.

“40 questions for logic, ingenuity and general erudition about the latitude of Moscow and Krasnoyarsk, what the ‘Siberian conversation’ is and where to find ‘mountain flax’. The test tasks were read to the participants by Andrey Voronov, a member of the Russian Geographical Society regional branch, director of the sports school No. 2”, the Norilsk Museum said.

By the way, this year the Norilsk people could offer their own question for the test.

Those who did not get to the museum can take the test online, without registration, until 14:00 (Moscow time) on November 24. The results will be known immediately.

Earlier, the Norilsk people checked their knowledge of economics, and also took the Arctic test.
