Makhachkala, June 23, 2014. Popular federal and regional bloggers arrived in Makhachkala for a blog tour of Daghestan. Today, a press conference for organizers and partners to the blog tour was held in Daghestan capital.
A well-known blogger, Chairman of the North Caucasus Journalists’ Association Razhap Mussaev said that the blog tour will travel beyond Dagestan, too – a series of blog tours will be organized in each North Caucasus Federal District region. "The blog tours are meant to establish inter-ethnic and inter-regional relations between Russian subjects, and to present the natural and ethno-cultural potential of our district," he said. The 3-day blog tour in each region will feature master classes for local reporters.
Mussayev added that, "The most active bloggers, who will be able to show Caucasian sites in all their glory on the Russian internet, will be granted the "Prometheus" online award.
Daghestan minister of press and information Aznaur Adzhiev welcomed the participants and organizers of the blog tour. He pointed out the importance of holding events like that in Daghestan because they help break down existing stereotypes seeing Caucasians as people of poor culture and education. He said that information resources like RIA "Daghestan" are changing for the better the way Dagestani are seen by people living in other Russian regions.
Member of the youth expert council of "North Caucasus Resorts" JSC (the organizer of the tour) and Head of the "Seven Wonders of North Caucasus" competition Magomed Abdullayev told participants about Daghestan blog tour route. For three days, the bloggers will visit one of the best stadiums in the country – "Anji-Arena", the Sary-Kum dune – the highest European sand dune, the Sulak Canyon – the second deepest canyon in the world, the Derbent’s Naryn-Kala fortress – the most ancient Russian fortress, the Derbent mosque – the oldest mosque in Russia, and the Samur forest – the only subtropical liana forest in Russia.
