The Republic of Bashkortostan - a brilliant millennial cut

The Republic of Bashkortostan Privolzhsky Federal District. The first in terms of the number of residents in the republics of the Russian Federation, 30% of whom live in the capital of the republic - Ufa and the surrounding district. Multinationality is the basis of the character of Bashkiria, 160 of different nationalities in a small territory have historically become related and have learned to live together. A third of the population classifies themselves as Russian nationalities, a quarter of Bashkirs and Tatars, as well as small groups of Chuvashes and Mari. The wealth of the region is associated with oil and gas. Therefore, contrary to the all-Russian trend in this region, since the beginning of the two-thousandth, the natural increase in the population is constantly increasing. In this republic the state language is Bashkir, which is used on a par with Russian. The state assembly of the republic is called the Kurultay.

Tourism and rest in the region

Location of Bashkortostan on the western slopes of the South The Urals and in the Urals defines a tourist orientation. The highest point is Yamantau - the third highest peak of the Ural range. Numerous peaks, ridges, gorges and caves have their own authentic legends directly connected with local beliefs and eventful history. The delights of rivers and lakes will be appreciated by lovers of water kinds of rest, and mad waterfalls enchant all without exception. In these parts, mountaineers and speleologists, kayak and kayak rafters, divers, anglers, as well as fans of the now trendy birdwatching enthusiasm (bird watching in the natural habitat) will find their routes.

Places that once visited Zoroaster (or Zarathushtra) are impregnated with centuries of knowledge. Akhunov's menhirs attract unusual lovers from all over the world, but they are not at all appreciated by the locals. Therefore, we recommend visiting megaliths, which are now supported by a small group of enthusiasts. On the way, wrap it to the healing springs and type in the pockets of gems - agate and jasper.

Touch the story

The cultural program will be filled with Ufa and its surroundings. The beginning of the history of the city was laid even in the Paleolithic times, after passing through the ages, the pearls of events formed in the most beautiful necklace, which is worthy to try on the most sophisticated tourist. Historical museums of the city contain in their storehouses the rarest exhibits of a thousand years. Palaces, churches and mosques will drive through the map of history from century to century. Fortresses and fortifications survived more than one invasion. Houses pre-revolutionary buildings and the building of the deputy noble assembly are perfectly preserved, and the architecture of the Soviet period is not inferior to the sophistication of the Moscow.
