 The Buryat village of Bolshoy Kunaley, where the descendants of the Old Believers who moved to Siberia in the eighteenth century live, received the status of “Russia’s most beautiful village”.

      The All-Russian Association titled “The Most Beautiful Villages of Russia” has held a solemn ceremony and installed an appropriate sign at the entrance to the settlement, as the “Moya Planeta” (“My Planet” in Russian) website reports with a reference to the association’s press service.

      As the Deputy Minister of Tourism of Buryatia Evgeny Malygin told, this is the evidence of the distinctive character of the settlement and preservation of the culture of the Old Believers. Now the population of Bolshoy Kunaley amounts to about a thousand people who are mainly engaged in agriculture. The village is famous for its folk choir representing the folklore of the Transbaikal Old Believers.
