Alagir: History And Souvenirs
April 17, 2017 16:23


Belgians came to develop ore deposits in Alagir in 1896. They organized “Alagir” Joint-Stock Company, rented Sadonskie Mines, Alagir Plant.

They constructed an ore mining and processing complex. Its ruins, “Belgian Towers”, still stand at the Mining Museum. “They were able to construct things” – the residents of Alagir still admire the preserved brick wall.

What to bring home from here?

Naturally, Ossetian pies.
Naturally, araka (preferably homemade one, but you may also buy it in shops).
Naturally, Ossetian cheese costing 300 roubles per kilo for eating it and for attempts to bake Ossetian pies on your own.
