The trip to Kalmykia was very exciting and interesting

Kalmykia The trip was very exciting and interesting. I never thought that such an unusual city as Elista is so close to Volgograd. Elista is different from all the cities in the country by its eastern atmosphere. As if you find yourself in the eastern dragon tale with pagodas …

The current state of Buddhism in Kalmykia

Chagdir Sandzhiev Chagdir Sandzhiev. The current state of Buddhism in Kalmykia
