This year such international activity will take place for the seventh time.

On Sunday, November 14, at 11:00 local time in all regions of the country will be held All-Russian Geographical Dictation. This year, representatives of 109 countries will be able to assess their knowledge at several thousand sites. One of them will be the Gornyak Multifunctional Complex.

Anyone interested can write the dictation. To do this, you must first fill in a registration form. To enter the site, you must have your registration form filled in and show your passport or another ID. We would like to point out that all the grounds of the country will work by the same schedule on November 14. Registration will take place from 11:00 to 12:00. Then a moderator will instruct participants on how to correctly fill in the answers and give the start of dictation.

The results will be available on the event’s website in the second half of December 2021. In addition, you’ll be able to get a Certificate of Participation. To do this, please contact the organizer of the Geographic Dictation site.

This event has been held annually since 2015 by the Russian Geographical Society at the initiative of the Chairman of its Board of Trustees Vladimir Putin. The purpose of the action is to increase interest in the geography of Russia among the population and to popularize the geographical knowledge of society. In 2017, for the first time, the dictation became international: it took place in 25 countries. And last year, the number of participating countries, including Russia, reached 110. The event was held on all continents except Antarctica, and even in space - on the ISS.
