The exhibitions are in fulfillment of instructions from the President of the Russian Federation and have been arranged in cooperation with the Russian Historical Society and the Institute of Russian History at the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The exhibition of the project "Historical Baggage" will be designed in the form of interactive multimedia displays, which will allow passengers to gain a detailed acquaintance with the history, geography, memorable places and wonderful people of the places along their route.

"Our goal is to interest our passengers, to encourage them to become more familiar with the history of the places through which they pass," said the Company CEO. "At first, the exhibitions will be at the Leningradsky railway station and Tver and Vyshny Volochyok stations, followed by 10 other stations between Moscow and St. Petersburg before 1 June 2019. By the beginning of July, exhibitions should be held at a number of stations along the Baikal Amur Main Line."
