On December 14, the official opening of the NARGIS CITY exhibition took place at the Port Baku Mall. This year, the opening of the gingerbread town coincided with a ten-year anniversary of NARGIS magazine. The idea of the project belongs to the editor-in-chief of NARGIS magazine Ulviyya Mahmud.
The opening was attended by representatives of different companies, bloggers, partners and friends of NARGIS, adults and children. Gifts in the form of gingerbread cookies and New Year's postcards made the atmosphere of the event even warmer and more festive.
The most talented confectioners of the country were involved in the creation of the gingerbread town.
The installation consumed 35 kg of flour, 12 kg of butter, 180 eggs, 20 kg of honey, 4 kg of ginger, 2 kg of cardamom and cinnamon, etc. - a total of 101 kg of gingerbread dough. Gingerbread houses, people and Christmas trees, a skating rink and a railway, clouds and balloons under the dome delighted both adults and children. The top of installation, enclosed in a glass ball, was decorated by a Christmas tree. The event took place under accompaniment of live music.
