Legends Of Sarai-Batu
March 4, 2015 14:41


One of the most popular legends related to Sarai-Batu is the legend of the two golden statues of horses in full size that decorated the Khan’s palace. One of them was allegedly buried with some Horde ruler, and the second horse was lost and excited the imagination of hunters for a long time. They say it was taken away and hidden by the Don Cossacks that served in the armies of the Golden Horde before the Battle of Kulikovo.

The Selitrennoye settlement seems to have very little things left for a modern tourist. Excursions are organized only in summer, and you can see mainly archaeological works here: disclosed foundations, basements and fragments of buildings. But the place itself, steppe and mounds over Akhtuba, dust storms in May and the land literally packed with ancient artifacts creates a very special atmosphere.

The latter is complemented by the historical complex “Sarai-Batu” in a few kilometers upstream – the motion-picture sets of the Khan’s capital built for “The Horde” movie.
