    Republic of Kalmykia

Kalmykia is a unique Asian republic situated in the European part of Russian Federation. It is the only Buddhist republic in this part of Russia and in the whole Europe as well. It is a point where Asia meets Europe, and the East meets the West.

This is an ancient land that still bears the traces of its past civilizations and preserves the cultural heritage of the Huns, ancient states and peoples, Chenghis Hans's troops and the Golden Horde. The Great Silk Route, one of the main ancient routes connecting peoples of Europe, Siberia, Central Asia and Middle East, passed through the Kalmyk steppes.

One of the main reasons to come to this land is to experience a wonderful feeling of unity with the nature and energy of boundless steppes, the beauty of wild tulips and vast fields.


The Kalmyks brought to the Volga steppes their folklore, one of the richest in the world, sharing common roots with the treasures of folklore and literature of India, Tibet and Mongolia. But the masterpiece of the Kalmyk oral tradition is, of course, a heroic epic "Dzhanghar" glorifying twelve fearless powerful warriors and Dzhanghar, their leader who defend their fairy-like homeland of Bumba and its happy people from their numerous enemies.
