The international action «Nature. Human being. Culture. 2013» is finished in Bashkortostan. This project, aimed at acquainting inhabitants of different countries with Bashkortostan, took place already for the 23rd time in the republic. A photo tour became its central event, during which within eight days ten cities and republican areas were visited by a  large group of photo artists from Russia, Turkey, Italy and countries-members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation and BRICS  — Brazil, India, China, Kazakhstan, Kirghizia, Uzbekistan.

The photo tour included Ufa, Salavat, Sterlitamak, Kumertau, Gafuriisky, Karmaskalinsky, Kugarchinsky, Meleuzovsky, Sterlibashevsky, Fedorovsky regions. Photographers could visit at once two sabantuys in Karmaskalinsky and Gafuriisky regions, concerts of the international festival «Berdemlek — Commonwealth», impressing industrial objects at JSC «Gazprom neftehim Salavat», a dam at the Jumaguzinsky water basin, could see unforgettable natural landscapes in rural areas of republic, set of mosques, churches and monasteries.
