About the pavilion

Transbaikal Territory’s pavilion has been designed on the inside and out to reflect the unparalleled riches of the region and the strength of its people who have mastered their lands.

The pavilion itself resembles the Kodar Mountains – one of the region’s most famous natural landmarks as well as a key mineral deposit. Colour and texture play an important role in the polygon-shaped design, indicating the metals that are extracted in the region, including copper, gold, silver, and uranium.

The resulting effect serves not only to highlight the region’s connection to nature, but also its modern outlook and focus on technologies, which are key to ensuring that resources are extracted in an efficient and careful manner. A panoramic window offering views of young cedars and the FEFU embankment will add an extra visual dimension.

Inside the pavilion, visitors will have the chance to learn more about the region’s rich resources from consultants wearing stylized costumes made of metallized fabric in the colours of gold, copper, and silver.
