The Sadra publishing house participated in this book exhibition for the fifth time with the support of the Ibn Sina Islamic Culture Research Foundation.
At the St. Petersburg International Book Salon our booth was attended by book lovers interested in the Islamic culture, history and philosophy of the Eastern peoples.
