Titicaca exhibition in St. Petersburg reviews

Why the exhibitioncalled "Titicaca"? Perhaps someone has heard of a lake with that name - one of the most mysterious lakes in the world. In numerous reviews of the exhibition "TITICACA" (St. Petersburg), visitors note that they were amazed by the fact that a hundred million years ago Lake Titicaca was a sea bay, but natural disasters raised it to a height of 4200 meters, and it stretched between the ridges of the central Andes. The water in the lake has become fresh for a long time, but representatives of the marine ichthyofauna are still found in it. The records of Lake Titicaca include that it is the highest navigable lake in the world and it contains the largest supply of fresh water in all of Latin America.

Hall "Cult things of the era"

In the first hall, visitors can find the very first edition of the Guinness Book of Records. It was then called "The Book of Superlatives. About the highest and lowest, big, small, fast, old, new, loud, hot, cold, strong." Mention of this book in reviews of the exhibition "TITICAKA" (St. Petersburg) is not uncommon. It aroused genuine interest among many visitors.

In the same hall you could see the first Barbie dolls and the first Macintosh personal computer in 1984.

The smallest Peel P50 car, 134 cm long, presented at the exhibition, was mass-produced by Great Britain. Its capacity is one person, the driver himself.

Here, in a smaller version - the Eiffel Tower. And also an entertaining exhibit that causes bewilderment and a smile - a French hat with a lightning rod, somethingresembling a regular knitting needle.

"Unbelievable, but true…" - this is how the inscriptions on many posters next to the exhibits begin.

Quite an interesting story about what SPAM is and where this word, familiar to everyone who uses e-mail, came from.

Strange Traditions Room

In this hall, among the exhibits, outlandish women's shoes from Ancient China are presented. These are women's shoes measuring from 7 to 10 centimeters, which were required to be worn by Chinese women, disfiguring their feet for the sake of tradition.

Somehow it becomes uncomfortable for a person who is at the stand with amulets made from a human head - tsantsa. In the eastern forests of Ecuador live the Jivaro tribes, known as "headhunters". Their ancestors believed that the strength and soul of a person is in the head, therefore, having killed the enemy, they appropriated his head and prepared an amulet from it, which they wore around their necks. Such things cause shock in a modern person, many visitors write about this in reviews of the exhibition "TITICAKA" (St. Petersburg).
