Tourist Kasper Boye told about Kalmykia

Hidden republic Photo exhibition

Photo exhibition “The hidden Republic – Pictures from Kalmykia” was opened in Denmark. Kasper Boye told about Kalmykia.

Kalmykia is Europe’s only Buddhist nation. It is located on the North Caucasus – with almost equidistant to the Black Sea in the west, the Caspian Sea in the east, Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad) in the north and the conflict-ravaged Chechnya in the south.

Kalmykia is a republic in the Russian Federation. They have their own parliament, but the political leader appointed from Moscow.

Ethnic kalmyks up more than half of the population (the rest are Russians, kasakher, etc..).
