you're watching r t the headlines for you. highlights the corruption that decentralizing power to make steps towards russia's modernization program. aging international economic stimulus but. the u.s. congress threatens to block washington's campaign in ninety days to go make yourself and center bomber extend the commitment to be on the bridge they sent instead playing contributes to the will. and thousands of
palestinians are left scraping for a living as israel with money owed today and if it was it could be used on terror attacks on us not reconciled people fear they are even less likely to see their catch. son see in sand as we take you to the beaches of russia's black sea coast. if you're taking your first trip to russia you'll probably be more inclined to pack a fur coat rather than a bucket and spade but if you have down south of the krisna you'll find beaches and hundreds of kilometers of beautiful coastline literally millions of people flock here every year proof that while russia may be famous for its snow and skiing there's plenty of sun sand and see here as well.
this is the longest developed embankments in europe fourteen kilometers of it and in the middle is this lady. the hopes dreams of the beach. and it's a stunning place the results of frame by the background of the caucasian mountains and on a sunny day of the seascapes can rival anything you might find in the greek islands and if you want to see the area in its full glory you just have to jump into a cable car. so you get a pretty good view on the way up here but i think i want to go just a little bit higher and also it's an excuse to. appear you can find the black seas
equivalent of the london although admittedly this is a little retro. going to the most technologically advanced this one. there's a big. five minutes to get to the top. if you. manage to cling on you're in for a treat. this is the highest braai on the black sea coast meters above the sea level. discovers incredible. maybe a little bit windy and a bit wobbly. to restore to arrive here in april when the season can continue into october. attractions to me area are good to appeal to the whole family and i wanted to check out one of its newest success stories. people come from all over russia to visit the black sea coast
but if you're looking for a different sort of multiculturalism it's probably a pretty good place to start. new flamboyant names here this is simply called old poke benchley it's not very old it's old but take a walk around and you'll soon get a picture. who needs a foreign holiday when you can come here you got the pyramids of egypt. the temples of ancient greece. and even a roman pavilion all in less time than it takes you to create. architect alexander i like save open the park back in two thousand and four with an ambitious plan in mind. we were out to get together many cultures within the space or east west caucasus russia. structures are filled with substance as.
you begin to realize that the culture. is a synthesis of many cultures. the whole period from. architecture. dedicated to ten different cultures and. paid all respects to zeus. egypt. it may be a little. bit it's based on but it's certainly boasting some foreign acoustics. have been too impressed with singing as it began to rain. it was a perfect moment mujahid indoors and visit the punks medieval town and there's a view of the grounds.
yes i can tell you that as far as the fine city is concerned this is a budding market. traditionally people here ate shish kabob. and now there's a great demand for seafood not only locally but also in moscow st petersburg and elsewhere there were no shellfish an oyster is in the menu bar the restaurants only local people like to cook shellfish for a very long time. so. there is an oyster die but then once they've arrived at the beds his job begins. the boats all. of the boys. were in the right place the secret. but once everything secure the catch has to be loaded into the rowboat and that's where the hard work begins if you're not a fan of dirty jobs this probably isn't for you each hole pretty much guarantees you a sea wall to show on fingers and plenty of unwelcome guests so little
crowds are there as well as going to stop. them soon can be surprisingly hard to find. so this kind of reading program apparent doesn't yield too many oysters they're quite rare and so we've got tons and tons of mussels but only. as hidden among them. on a bit of a needle in a haystack but again his crew off though this still huge demand for fresh muscles locally. and there's definitely no shortage of them. so this is going to be one of the biggest seafood buffy's you have a lightly the sea going to twenty. mussels appearing bathing crabs and face and of course the press is oyster it's not often you get to eat seafood when it's this fresh unfortunately on an oyster boat there's no show. experience has.
before me here at the dolphinarium for more than ten years. beginning technique down to a fine old. but this is probably the best quickest way to make friends i think. this one is great it. is the best way to get quickly. doesn't mean having to share a bed breakfast. with the ladies clamoring for the ghost. in a row the fights i've won the. rivalry stick. around two hundred fifty kilos tips the scales over three hundred but fortunately
production just like you was. still in and used sacks seven years ago a name in the queue for of a gave up her practice is a doctor to become an artist and environmentalist. recycling is still rare in russia and is a common sight mina has opened. to try and draw attention to the damage the waste is doing to the local area. it's always a pain to see the earth tone into a garbage can i try to collect some of the rubbish but of course my efforts were in vain the trash was not getting smaller many people just don't understand me i don't know how to explain it to them my idea is to make people remember my work and everything that i have taken care of before their litter i want them to remember my beloved lexie and the fish it will be great if they begin doing such things even better than me i mean or offer to give me
a quick lesson in how to make plastic stick that isn't there let's make a fish ok come on we're making a little addition for name is biggest installation a sculpture that's intended to represent the whole of the black sea first let's get rid of unnecessary stuff here is the thera mug on take a look it's not clear if it's a fish yet but now we're going to shape it look here is the tail. and now we are going to color it and it will become absolutely fabulous. painting. bryant that's right. yes beautiful i don't affect and no you should shake it a little bit to let the paint spread sort of out i think that's a let me. let me paint for words. exactly sure what breed of fish we were creating but it was pretty colorful and once the finishing touches had been
added it was ready to take its place in the gallery forwards we go james and here is here to make this work if you know now you have your own face in the back seat of the truck into the sea find a nice place behind hope she'll have a happy life. to me and to think you can transform this rubbish into something really rather beautiful and hopefully the people who say it maybe they'll think a little bit more before they chuck away that next plastic bottle. but taking a look at that sculpture of the black sea reminded me of another thing i haven't quite have the time for yes. i've been so busy here in the truck stop almost forgot about my favorite thing to the seaside. and it is up here. culture is that so much about the taxpayers i mean it is
a shame if my people at area b. you're always in crisis will be you with this ten years of. wealthy british style the stock. market. can't. find out what's really happening to the global economy with mike stronger or a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune into kaiser report. so far on my trip i have a chance to meet a few of the black seas marine animals but i've heard that up there in the hills there were plenty more who prefer dry land the least most of the time this isn't just an ordinary zero it's
a rescue and the retirement center for injured alex performing on the walls. is enjoying her early morning ball this full report looks off to more than sixty different species a moment with head keeper. until he started working here three years ago because i was a hunter but it seems like the animals don't generally crunches. let's go milo buddy this is blue the himalayan band both mellow don't you want to say hello you want to have fun and once. he's only ten months old growing like a weed he's a fairly. there when he gets big. he's going to be about a hundred. and i think he's. great i'm having fun and biting everything in his meat. every careful. but. if you think bellew's a way to make his friends next door. is
a baby. with a space of recent the zoo now has around three hundred animals and they've set up a. big cats and what can we get along my place. my jeans and my shoes are becoming a delicious treat and just a few months ago they welcomed one of the world's rarest animals this little is adam a baby i will try again and the son of two confiscated tyga so he really is a little nervous. and you can already see. it's not going to be too long. if. he's going to turn into the world's biggest cat and a bit of a killer and i'm hoping he's going to be gentle with me. here have been rescued from poaches or from circuses but some come from rather more unusual
backgrounds. this is grigori he lived with her grandmother in know what i see he was living in a simple flat for a long time is more than ten years old grandmother has brought him here some three years ago she was a very old woman she brought to bear here in a car without any cage just using a leash she cooked a big delicious cake for him that grandmother is just too old to look after him. i'm just going to bed living in a granny flat now and. you've been a big spare room with me. but never seemed to have such a bond of trust with so many different creatures it was like being around a real life dr doolittle and hopes that the fountains of visitors who come to the park take a new appreciation of the animals away with them. for a visit to the supposed good minor cuts and bruises i figured it was time to visit
one of the black seas more sedate tourist attractions then maybe get myself something to eat. one thing you learn quite quickly about the russians is that they love their bread whether it's brown growing it pretty much comes with everything but we just call it strains in the two years i've been traveling around this country i've never seen. a mill that was growing flour in this area more than a century ago and with the help of a few modern improvements it's back in business. the history of this company is fairly typical of russia. eight hundred ninety five it was nationalized in one thousand eight team. in the one nine hundred thirty s. it was renamed sickle and hammer and wasn't until the early one nine hundred sixty s. . a few years ago the original mill was stripped transported and rebuilt him and the old gears were given a new lease of life. but it really is
a timeless bit of engineering. by the way. and that energy. is then converted down here by these wheels. and this one is part of the original century mechanism still running today. which means these two parts up into the ground. and we get flour the same way it's been produced. and making it is a really simple process so. thank you. and now follow me. here is the receiving bunker. this week here that's it now the process is already underway plenty of kneading and baking. time for a snack. ok so i've heard of
a ploughman's lunch but i'm guessing this is a miller's lunch just milk. and some fresh bread and they were there are. good. this mill may be an example of the region's recent history but they're all relics along the shoreline that date back to antiquity. this is the ancient city of gold to fear it was home to thousands of people until it was destroyed in the third century a.d. and it's one of the best preserved examples. of the one thousand city on the russian coast the greeks who settled him named the city after a samarian king and its ruins cover around forty. it's still possible to wander through the so is of great houses and you can even discover the citizens favorite tipple i bet the this would have been one of the most popular places back in the
days of good because it's the remains of an ancient winery people would have crossed the grapes here the juice then would have come down these forests and into these enormous votes. show you. down here. unfortunately. well we've got now of course it is rain water but back in the day this would have held the equivalent of bowling balls and. you may have been long since deserted but the descendants of its creek settlers are still in the area and they still have a passion for the grape. this is russia's wine country around sixty percent of the crop comes from around this area and on about to meet the people who make some of the best. these. grapes yes and this is a very important son of you.
and his family are almost ready to start making the latest batch of their famous runs. so much depending on the use of stretch i will set you back around fifty dollars but the grapes went distant from. my father. oh yes the beginning. is bringing in the harvest he likes to have a few friends and the old greek tradition. where it's. there was a pretty big power of grapes to crush so it seemed to take the plunge. you supposed to get everyone stomping away in a nice uniform rhythm but lumia greek slipping around on fifty kilos of grapes
takes some doing. and i was about to get my reward from them being a foot. so i think. we definitely deserve a drink thank you very much. yes. she was said to continue the evening but i wanted to take a stroll across a number of the regions around months before i called my plane back to moscow. hole . when it's this windy even plenty of wine won't keep you warm. and his son max can run a.t.v. tours along with the units here. and off to tackling the dunes it certainly beats walking back to the hotel. it may have been getting chilly but as
a born and bred seaside town boy i was sad to be leaving the black sea coast it may not boast the infrastructure of some of the famous mediterranean resorts but with months of sunshine relatively low prices and no troublesome visa receivers is easy to see why millions of russians come here for the summer holidays it's a place to relax bring the family and enjoy the warmest blue water that russia has to offer.
