"Vatan" is an ethnic park in Ufa, opened to acquaint foreign guests with the culture of Bashkortostan in 2015. Since opening as a one-off project, the park has gained popularity and has become one of the forces attracting tourists to the republic. The sites and expositions of the "Vatan" park fully and completely reflect the originality of Bashkiria and acquaint all interested visitors with it. The complex consists of several yurts and the surrounding area, which is used for demonstration events. Park history The Vatan Ethnic Park in Ufa was created several years ago, in 2015. At that time, the VII BRICS summit was held in Bashkortostan, during which delegations from Brazil, India, China, South Africa, as well as from many other states and republics, visited Ufa.

The aim of the project was to familiarize the guests-delegates with the culture of the indigenous people of Bashkiria and their national customs. In addition, an equally important goal of the exhibition was to demonstrate modern national achievements. Thus, in order to create a detailed and meaningful exposition, several yurts were installed next to the Toratau congress hall in Ufa with a thematic exhibition. The Ethnic Park was actively working during the BRICS summit, after that it was closed for some time. Soon the expositions in the Vatan ethnopark became available to the residents of Ufa, and the site itself was opened for daily visits. Exhibitions and events In 2019, the yurts were removed, at the moment the area is empty. The Vatan Park in Ufa is open daily from 10:00 to 22:00. The entire territory of the "Vatan" ethnic complex consists of 7 yurts and the adjacent square. Each of the yurts is a separate thematic area available for visiting. Yurt Tamga The word "tamga", translated from the Bashkir language, refers to the tribe. That is why this yurt serves as a platform for numerous master classes reflecting the Bashkir culture and conveying the community. Tea ceremonies are also held here quite often.

Ethnographic yurt This part of the complex is an expositional part - elements of a museum exhibition are presented there. These include home decorations, household utensils and costumes that most accurately reflect the ancient Bashkir way of life. Yurt of masters In the Yurt of masters, one can get acquainted with the handicrafts. At this exhibition site, you can see with your own eyes the process of making Bashkir carpets and felting. Honey Museum One of the expositions of the Vatan ethnopark is entirely devoted to honey. Bashkir honey is really famous and famous in many parts of Russia, so many visitors to the exposition will find it useful to learn interesting facts about its production. Subsoil of Bashkortostan Here visitors are told about the minerals and other natural resources of the republic. Guests will hear the music of stones and learn about the history of the depths of the Bashkir land. Photo stories This site has a photo zone for guests.

Each visitor has the opportunity to try on the national Bashkir costume and take pictures in stunning scenery or against the backdrop of the most beautiful corners of the republic. Ufa of the future In the yurt "Ufa of the Future", guests are introduced to the modern achievements of the republic and told about the concept of its development. Here one can also learn about urban trends in the city's development. The Vatan Park in Ufa is an extraordinary place permeated with the ethnic culture of the republic. It is also known that the park quite often becomes a venue for mass city events and folk festivals. For example, in 2018, the city Maslenitsa was successfully held at Vatan. In other words, being a tourist in Ufa, Vatan Park is really worth a visit in order to plunge into the history of the region or just have some fun.
