A picture exhibition of Russian bell towers opened March 28 at the Ancient Bell Museum of the Great Bell Temple in Beijing.

The exhibition is co-presented by the museum and the State Museum of the History of St. Petersburg, the two of which collaborated on a 2016 rubbing exhibition of Beijing's ancient clocks in St. Petersburg, Russia.

A total of 39 images, together with short videos, are presented in the exhibition, showing typical Russian bell towers of different regions and eras, reflecting the historical development of ancient bell culture in Russia, something deeply embedded in the lives of Russians.

The State Museum of the History of St. Petersburg has many historic buildings, including the Peter and Paul Fortress, the oldest in the city.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is the image of a 122.5-meter-high bell tower within the fortress. This tower is still the tallest building in St. Petersburg, home to dozens of ancient bells and a set of European glockenspiels comprising 51 chimes.

The exhibition will run through May 20.
