Russian Educational Initiative Arrives in Brazil Challenging Geography Lovers


The country with the largest territory in the world, Russia poses a challenge from the geographical point of view. Soon Brazilians will have the opportunity to test their knowledge about the Slavic country and make a dictation in the form of a questionnaire.

The Russian Geographic Society brings for the first time to Brazil the international educational initiative “Geographical Dictation” that will take place on November 11 in Rio de Janeiro.

The questionnaire is held annually since 2015 in Russia and abroad under the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The purpose of the action is to propagate geographic knowledge and arouse interest in Russia’s geography.

This year the initiative has significantly expanded its borders and, in addition to Brazil, will take place for the first time in countries such as Jordan, Thailand, Costa Rica, the United Arab Emirates, and many others.

The event will be held at My Office Smart Offices in the Centro Empresarial Città Office, Av. Das Américas, 700, Block 7, Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro / RJ.

Meanwhile, this is not the only cultural exchanges between Brazilias and Russians that are upcoming in Rio.

Diplomatic relations between Russia and Brazil have just celebrated their 190th anniversary and now the people of Rio de Janeiro have the possibility to get to know Russia better through their culture, including children’s creativity, integrated arts and Russian food.

To celebrate the anniversary of the long history of friendship between Russians and Brazilians, the NGO Social Attitude and the Central Children’s Library, located in the Russian city of Zhukovsky in the Moscow region, with support from the Brazilian Cultural Center in Moscow, present the Festa Russian at Santa Marta hill. The event will take place on November 10 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the NGO Social Attitude in Rua da Serenidade (former Rua Cosme e Damião), 02.

The purpose of the event is to present to Brazilians of all ages Russia and its traditions through the integrated arts.

In Russia, a children’s painting competition was organized for the second time in the themes “The colors of Brazilian nature” and “Brazilian tales”. The students of the Central Children’s Library of Zhukovsky, after reading Brazilian short stories in Russian and searching information about Brazil, presented their works. The best paintings will be brought to Brazil and exhibited at the NGO Social Attitude.
