Rafting Festival on Chusovaya River

The Chusovaya River Native rafting festival took place in June 2011 in the Urals. Participants – including RTG TV’s Igor Maximenko – familiarized themselves with local traditions, constructed models of traditional Ural wooden barges, called «barki», saw the first copper works, built by well-known entrepreneur Domidov, and walked down the Chusovaya River along the same path Yermak Timofeyevich, Cossack chieftain and conqueror of Siberia once did.
