The Museum of the World Ocean has prepared a new amazing dive to the Wild Underwater World for World Ocean Day.

From June 5, a new exhibition project will be presented in the most mysterious and uncommon places of the museum
– in the hold of the legendary R/V Vityaz from June 5.

Underwater photographers from Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Belorussia, Sweden, Germany, Philippines and Thailand present over 100 new underwater photographs taken in diverse seas and oceans, lakes and rivers within the 6th Underwater Photography Festival ‘Wild Underwater World’. Besides prize-winners of prestigious Russian and international contests, beginners also take part in the exhibition. The festival’s goal is to show a fascinating beauty of
the underwater world and its amazing inhabitants.

Rays, floating in water, and hypnotizing fish whirls, “cosmic” jellyfish and curious skeleton shrimps, an “armed to the teeth” crocodile and magnificent whales, peculiar nudibranchs and a living carpet of undersea “flowers” – actiniae, sponges and corals… One can enjoy this extraterrestrial beauty for ages!

Each photograph contains great talent and hard work. In order to capture sea dwellers’ life, authors have to carry an aqualung and 15-kilo photo equipment, struggle with currents, encounter stinging jellyfish, man-eater sharks and other dangerous deep-sea creatures. And, please, believe, not every sea inhabitant wants to “sit for a photograph”. However, the result was worth hours-waiting: the ocean slowly and little by little unveils its secrets and shows a thrilling
beauty of the underwater world.

The exhibition is on from June 6 to September 12. Visiting is upon request only. Tel. +7-4012-53-17-44.
