About the pavilion

The concept of the architecture of the pavilion of the Magadan Region includes geometric figure – a triangle, which had an important significance for the indigenous peoples of the region from ancient times. It symbolizes the unity of the body, soul, and spirit, and is used as a national ornament.

The golden plating of the pavilion's façade refers to the fundamental foundation of the regional economy – natural reserves. The elevation of the pavilion above the level of the podium creates a floating effect. The combination of gold material in the main decoration makes the object sparkle, and the wood adds warmth and comfort. A relationship is created between natural principles and minerals and metals, which are rich in the Magadan region.

A gem of the pavilion, the Nagaev Bay layout forms the basis for enhancing the Magadan sea façade. The work is largely financed by federal funds under the Social Development Plan for Economic Growth Centers in the Magadan Region.

 The fascinating installation of the sea façade is housed in translucent glass boxes filled with sand and gravel. You can view the layout projection using the rotary controllers, and the layout can be supplemented with dynamic drawings and infographics.

 Visitors to the pavilion will get to see video presentations related to the Magadan Region development and individual sectors of the region's economy. Everyone will have the chance to test their luck in the interactive Fishing game and get acquainted with the unique inhabitants of the Okhotsk Sea. Holding the rod, you can even feel the tension of the line and jolts when biting. Everything feels like a real-life fishing!

The pavilion will traditionally host an exhibition and sale of products with native gold. Representatives of the indigenous peoples will tell you about folk industries, recipients of the Far Eastern hectare, about the story of success, and how small and medium businesses will demonstrate their products.

The most active guests of the pavilion will be able to take part in work shops for gold flushing and get prizes in the "Prospector's Fortune" competition.

Under the guidance of professional craftsmen from the Magadan region, you can participate in the unique heritage of the peoples of the North and make by yourself traditional products from bone, fur, and beads.

The Ensemble of Song and Dance of the Peoples of the North "Ener" will present a large variety of traditional song and dance performances of the Far North peoples living in the Magadan region.

In the pavilion cafe you can buy drinks and Kolyma delicacies.
