Tourist Routes In Bashkiria
(Source: http://russiantourism.ru/news/news_16385.html)

The need for creation of national tourist routes is being discussed in Bashkiria.

      The branding of the republic on the basis of the national epos “Ural-Batyr” implies three specific directions: national (with national zest and attributes) tourist route “Golden Belt of Ural-Batyr”; national tourist route “Ural-Batyr Ere”; the presentation of a holiday of Bashkir tea – “Kukushkin tea” which has recently been tested at the international exhibition “Intourmarket” in Moscow.

      After additional elaboration it is planned to sign an agreement on joint activities and the promotion of the national tourist route “Ural-Batyr” as a common brand.

      Bashkiria was originally inhabited by the tribes of Bashkirs, a Turkic people. They are a part of the huge Turkic world settled on territory from the Baltic and Black seas in the west up to the Okhotsky sea and the Pacific ocean in the east, from Caucasian up to Himalayan and Gindohushsky Mountains in the south. The ethnic history of the Bashkirs is very rich and old, it totals thousand of years. The subsequent formation of the Bashkir culture passed in conditions of their interaction with Slavic and Ugro - Finnish peoples. The Bashkirs formed military unions and participated in all kinds of communication with many peoples inhabiting the adjacent territories. The Bashkirs were primarily a nomadic people, and were spending about half of their life in temporary dwellings, so called yurta (nomads tent). Yurta is an ideal dwelling as it is warm in hard frost, and cool in heat. The skeleton of traditional yurtas consists of four or six wooden collapsible lattices (ropes), which are put in a circle and fixed by stones. Then yurta is covered by large pieces of leather forming yurta’s cone-shaped roof. It is formed from wooden thin poles (uk), the lower end of which was based on lattices, upper (pointed) one - on a wooden circle (sagarak) that simultaneously was both a window and a smoke outlet to let the steam accumulating under its felt vault to go out from yurta.


      
The Bashkirs are almost entirely Muslims. In the eighteenth century, the Orthodox Church attempted to convert them to Christianity, but today, only about 3% are Christians. Those who converted to Christianity are now organized into a tiny minority known as the Nagaibaks. Islam is not as deeply rooted among the Bashkir people as it is among the Tatars. However, Ufa, Bashkiria's capital, has been the center of religious life for European Russian Muslims since the eighteenth century. It is the seat of the "Muslim Spiritual Board for European Russia and Siberia."
