Far East in the palm of your hand

The Far East Street is the "place of power" of the Eastern Economic Forum.

Far East Street makes the impossible possible - it shortens the distance. With a quick step, the entire Far Eastern Federal District can be crossed in a matter of minutes, but immersion in the atmosphere of each of the Far Eastern regions does not like haste. The EastRussia correspondent was convinced of this from his own experience.

Enthusiastic "Wow!" are already heard on the way to the Far East street - each region strives to impress guests and participants of the forum with the appearance of its pavilion. The mini-branch of the Amur Region broadcasts to all those approaching the metaphor of a non-standard approach to solving problems inherent in the region.

Earth, chemistry and space - these three words convey the essence of the exposition of the Amur region. The entire first floor is devoted to agriculture, the second tells about the Vostochny cosmodrome and gas chemical projects. But there are also hiking trails - they are discussed separately - especially about the first international cable car, the construction of which has already begun.

The spirit of Buryatia penetrates into the guest of the streets of the Far East even before getting inside the pavilion of the republic - before the entrance the visitor is greeted with prayer drums "Khurde". Inside the cylinders there is a list with mantras, and if you start the rotation of each of them three times, the messages of the mantras will go to the world invisible to man, and he himself will increase his wisdom. How powerful the spirit can become is demonstrated by the demonstration performances of the masters of heer shaalgan - a traditional Buryat game, the external goal of which is to break the backbone of an animal by weight.

In general, heer shaalgan is one of the elements of upbringing the character of future men, the ability to concentrate, in addition, according to the beliefs of the Buryats, it is in the backbone that the soul of an animal lives. When the bone is broken, the soul finds its next rebirth, and the one who did this is considered to have done a good deed.

The pavilion of the Jewish Autonomy greets with a rainbow - a heraldic symbol depicted on the flag of the region and traditional Jewish melodies.
