The project is designated to promote Mongolia through a multimedia channel which contains more than 1200 images, ‘The Secret History of the Mongols’ and other ways. In frames of the project, exhibition installations dedicated to foreign and domestic tourists will be set up on the Central Square to remain in function for 6 months starting from June 1, this year.
