The zone dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Yakut ASSR will present the key projects timed to the anniversary date.

Visitors to the pavilion will be able to get acquainted with the tourism potential of the Republic in the Visit Yakutia area. Today the region has more than 300 unique tourist products. Existing itineraries are constantly transformed, responding to new trends and demands of tourists.

Evening programme will feature screenings of Yakut cinema, a phenomenon of the national film industry.

«The year 2022 is special for us: we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Yakut ASSR. The century-long history of the Republic is an amazing feat of generations of Yakut people who transformed these boundless harsh lands. Today, we are setting goals for moving forward in the coming century. Yakutia is already one of the strategically important regions of Russia, an economic, scientific, and educational centre of the Arctic and the Far East. The Republic is among the top ten leaders in the country in terms of economic growth rates. The goal we are moving towards is the development of Yakutia as a centre of attraction of talents and knowledge, a centre of new technologies and new industry, a place for self-fulfilment of every person. See you at the pavilion of Yakutia!» noted the Governor of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Aisen Nikolayev.
