The authorities of Ingushetia launched new helicopter routes to the mountainous sights.


Matsesta is known as a separate area between Khosta and Sochi, but it is an administrative part of Khosta district. It has unusually beautiful views that mostly relate to the Sochi National Park and a very modest infrastructure.


The Friedland Gate is the only one of the seven surviving city gates of Koenigsberg and the youngest of all these gates.


Matsesta is a place of power, health and has a strong smell of hydrogen sulfide. This place has healing springs that have attracted people here since ancient times.


The Friedland Gate built in 1862; it was the last link in the defensive ring of Koenigsberg. They covered the road to Friedland, the modern Pravdinsk.


Nowadays the Royal Gate not only tells us about the emergence of Koenigsberg-Kaliningrad and its development at the crossroads, it is a museum with open exhibitions; solemn book presentations and wedding ceremonies are held there, and the Kaliningrad Consular Corps has chosen the Royal Gate as a venue for the annual celebration of the Diplomats Day.


The Fort titled King Friedrich Wilhelm III was built in late XIX century as part of the Koenigsberg defensive ring.


Being a part of the Second Defensive Rampart, surrounding the city in a continuous 15-kilometer ring, the gate witnessed the passage of various historical persons.


Fort No. 5 is a powerful defensive structure surrounded by a moat with water, a stone wall and an earthen rampart. It was built in late XIX century and passed its main test in 1945.


Modern Saransk is a rare type of Russian city: it has become comfortable and charming, thanks to the efforts of its residents.


The sweets of the Saransk Lamzur confectionery factory are not sold virtually anywhere outside the republic, which does not mean that their quality is low, but makes such a gift an original one.


National Mordovian dishes are kersez - chopped meat, baked with potatoes, medvezhya lapa(bear paw) - a kind of cutlet of pork, liver, bread and eggs as well as pancakes on millet flour.


Saransk responsibly prepares for the influx of domestic and foreign guests: creates infrastructure virtually from scratch, builds monumental stadiums, renovates historical buildings, breaks down old ugly buildings and constructs something modern in their place.


The Saransk fortress built in 1641 at the confluence of the rivers Insar and Saranka, was almost square-shaped. The Saranka River flowed directly through the territory of the fortress, whereas the fortress was surrounded by an earthen rampart from the outside.


Saransk is the centre of Finno-Ugric culture of Russia. Since 2007 a large festival titled Shumbrat, Finno-Ugria! has been held there.


If you dont have enough time to get acquainted with the surroundings of the city, try to visit at least the Sanaksar Monastery of the Nativity of the Mother of God where Admiral Ushakov is buried.


The town of Zeya is sometimes called little Paris, although it has nothing to do with Paris. It is a usual Far Eastern town: low-rise buildings, disgusting roads, wonderful nature.


An ancient Paleolithic man site named Deering-Yuryakh was discovered on a high mountain near Elanka, on the opposite bank of the Lena River, in September 1982.


The Bezymyannaya fortress battery is one of the oldest fortifications of the Vladivostok Fortress. In 1862 the hill of Bezymyannaya was used to place smoothbore guns and deploy a platoon of mountain artillery. Since that moment the hill has been called Battery.
