The Republic of Kalmykia

Kalmykia is the republic in the south of Russia. Steppe covered with grassy vegetation constitute 90% of Kalmykia territory. In spring the steppe blossoms out. In the middle of April the boundless scopes are dotted with a bright-red carpet of tulips. It was in Kalmykia steppe that wild bulbs of tulips for cultivation and sale were taken out in the 16th century. Rare natural wonders include the Manych-Gudilo and Bolshoe Yashaltinskoe Lakes, as well as the Europe's largest Buddhist temple Golden Cloister of Shakyamuni Buddha, ancient Kalmykia epic «Jangar», guttural singing and dancing «Chichirdyk». Learn all this in a new film by RTG TV.
