this is a story of the russian president. in the country. defeating corruption among the goals voiced by dmitry medvedev at the international economic forum in. cash us congress members say cut funding for libya and that's the president gets the constitutional go ahead. but the white house claims there's no need for congressional consent. plus the e.u.
moves towards new sanctions against syria in a push that's fit to be a build up for libya's star intervention. but with more on those stories in less than thirty minutes from now in the meantime we take you to russia's sunny seaside and the sprawling shores of the black sea stay with us for that. if you're taking the first trip to russia you'll probably pack a coat in a bucket and spade but if you head down south to the krisna region you'll find beaches and hundreds of kilometers of beautiful coastline literally millions of people flocking 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 in europe fourteen kilometers of it and in the middle is this lady of. the hopes dreams. of. a stunning place the results of frame by the background of the mountains and on a sunny day the seascapes 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. straight off. 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 there. you can find the black seas equivalent of the london although admittedly this is
a little retro. going to the most technologically advanced. safety equipment. there's a big. five minutes to get to the top. if you. managed to cling on for a treat. this is the highest braai on the black sea coast meters above the sea level. discovers incredible. when. they were trying. to restore to arrive here in april when the season can continue into october. attractions are 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 park specially it's not very old it'll take a walk around and you'll soon get a picture. who needs a foreign holiday when you can come here you've 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 of open the pope back in two thousand and four with an ambitious plan in mind. we were out to get together many cultures within the narrow space or east west caucasus russia. these architectural structures are filled with substance as
you look around you begin to realize that the culture of humankind is a synthesis of many cultures races the whole period from ancient designs all the way to modern architecture. alexander has areas dedicated to more than ten different cultures and we. paid all respects to zeus and we found ourselves in ancient egypt. it may be a little smaller than the pyramid of giza but it's based on but it's certainly boasting some fine acoustics. listening he can't have been too impressed with all singing as it probably began to rain. it was a perfect moment mujahid indoors and visit the parks medieval town and there's a bird's eye view of the grounds. here we
are james this is our territory. is to build a space where architecture and nature into the harmony. to be. balanced if your fortune has something to do with the docs are probably a pretty good place to start and if you go there early enough they'll be plenty of fishermen setting off for their morning catch. one of the best. so that's why we're. going to take the place. down there. sam. will work from the. cruel muscle and. they've been breeding the tasty mollusks for three years but they're already proving very popular. show you that as far as he is concerned
this is a budding market. traditionally people here. know 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. and once they've arrived at the beds his job begins. but once everything secure the catch has to be loaded into the rowboat and that's where the big. if you know. this probably isn't for you each will pretty much guarantees you a sequel to show on the fingers and plenty of. little
crowds in 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 so you see we've got tons and tons of muscles but only. hidden among them. when even the needle in the haystack. this still huge to my muscles locally. and there's definitely no shortage of them. so this is going to be one of the big easy of the light be the c we're going to write one hundred twenty. muscles appearing bathing crabs and fish and of course. when you get to eat seafood when it's this fresh unfortunately. there's no shortage of experience because. for. me to be the most
romantic setting to try one of nature's great effort. you don't get that much fresher than this. not to mention extremely tasty. so i have my long journey over. but i'm not sure that even the most generous marine biologist would count muscles among the small to screech is. intelligent animals. well when you're behind a black sea tough to find. here. say hello to zurich. three beautiful. they've been living in before me here of
the dolphinarium for more than ten years. beginning technique down to a four. this is probably the best quickest way to make friends i think. this one. is the best way to get quickly. to share their breakfast. with the ladies glimmering. in a row. since. around two hundred fifty. tips the scales are over three hundred but fortunately
nothing ever will. go this amazing. although i could do the lesson or two on how to gracefully exit a clue. to do things for. an obese way i. look at my gym and. thankfully impeached dosing is a rare sight along the black sea coast but you can find quite a few unwelcome additions to the shoreline. unfortunately like many other resorts around the world the black sea coast has its own problems with lets up but as they say sometimes one man's trash can be another man's treasure or in this case another woman's treasure. what are the other ways probably in sacks production and some bottles here you can see waists from shoes production
just like us. for that one here that i'm also falling filling and used sacks seven years ago a name in the queue for of a gave up her practice is a dr to become an artist and them are mentalist. recycling is still rare in russia and discarded litter is a common sight name and has opened the white horse gallery to try and draw attention to the damage the waste is doing to the local area. it's always a pain to see the tone in into a garbage can i try to collect some of the rubbish but of course my efforts wearing them in 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 the litter i want them to remember my beloved black sea 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 bunter stick there isn't the let's make
a fish ok come on we're making a little addition for name his 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 fairmont gun 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're going to color it and it will become absolutely fabulous. with. some painting. yes beautiful. perfect and no you should shake it a little bit to let the paint spread sort of. let the paint for. 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 for what we go james and here is here. now you have your own back see that's right into the sea find a nice place for her hope she'll have a happy lie. to me and think you can transform this rubbish into something really rather beautiful and hopefully the people who see it when people think a little bit more 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 you. i've been so busy here in the car to go about my favorite thing to the seaside. and it is up here. hungry for the full story we've got it for. the biggest issues get
a human voice face to face with the news makers. including. bringing you the latest in science and technology from around. we've got the future covered. cultures that so much about taxpayers' money magazine shake a lot of people and. we're always in crisis will be you with this ten years. 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 drawing. the least most of the time. this isn't just an ordinary it's a rescue and a retirement center for injured alex performing on the most. is enjoying her early morning ball this full report looks after 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. this is blue the himalayan pant bold 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. now but when he gets big. it's going to be about a hundred. and i think he's. right on having fun and biting everything in his meat. every careful. but. then if you think bellew's way too late is friends next door. being baby. with a speech of recent. has around three hundred animals and they've set up
a nursery for their baby pig 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 want. and the son of two confiscated tyga so he really is a little miracle and you can already see. it's not going to be too long. before. 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 poachers or from circuses but some come from rather more unusual backgrounds. this is grigori he lived with their 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. just imagine a bad living in a granny flat now. 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 duck to do little and hopes that the thousands of visitors who come to the park take a new appreciation of the animals away with them. having survived my visit to the safari park with minor cuts and bruises i figured it was time to visit one of the black sees 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 black roy 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 one of those. it's a ripple of a mill that was grinding 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 founded in 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 bit of engineering. so. i'm not
energy. is then converted down here by these wheels. and this one is part of the original century mechanism still running today. which. we get. and making it is a really simple process so. follow me. here is a receiving. this week here. now the process is already underway plenty of. time for smoke. ok so i've heard of a plan but i'm guessing this is a. milk. bread.
this mill may be an example of the region's recent history but they're all relics of the date back to antiquity. this is the ancient city of gold the pier 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 nation city on the recent coast the greeks who settled here named the city after samarian king and its ruins cover around forty hacked 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 niche would have been one of the most popular places back in the days of because it's the remains of an ancient winery people would have crushed the grapes had the juice then would have come down these forests and into these enormous votes. show you.
down here. unfortunately. all we've got now of course is rain water but back in the day this would have held the equivalent of thousand bottles. have been long since deserted but the descendants of its greek 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 about to meet the people who make some of the best. these. grapes yes and this is a very important sign of you. and his family are almost ready to start making the latest batch of their famous
brand name has a price tonight so much depending on the use of stretch i will set you back around fifty dollars but the grapes went destined for the. 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's been you know. she was said to continue into 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. whole. 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. him off the 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
