Exotic Shangri-la exhibition extended to Bratislava Airport

A second installment of the exotic exposition 'Shangri-La', subtitled 'India - Nepal - Tibet - Bhutan', which has so far been on display at the Slovak National Museum (SNM) has opened at an untraditional venue - Bratislava's M.R. Štefánik airport. Shangri-La is a synonym for paradise on earth, a land of everlasting peace, happiness and prosperity under the icy throne of the Himalayan gods, the TASR newswire wrote. The exhibition offers a journey through four countries lying under the highest mountains in the world. Airport visitors now have a chance to see photographs documenting life from this part of Asia, supplemented with various ritual tools and religious monuments.

The exhibition is a result of the seven-year-long journey of traveller, adventurer, photographer and mountaineer Rudo Svaricek to the Himalayas, in co-operation with SNM and other institutions. Shangri-La, accompanied by supplementary events, will run until June 30 at the airport. TASR
