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 …

In general, Kalmykia, I think, a real paradise for tourists. There are many opportunities for almost any type of vacation.

We were particularly impressed by their originality capital of Kalmykia – Elista. Unlike the cities of Central Russia, Elista is fully saturated with religious culture. Wherever I look – everywhere there are elements of Buddhism. Read the rest of this entry »

Ilyumzhinov, Vanga, Dalai Lama and Kalmykia

Taking the decision to run for president of Kalmykia, I realized clearly that people were fed up with continuous elections, political intrigues and playing at democracy.
