at least sixteen lives on friday and some experts warn the sanctions could be paving the way for libya style intervention. next trip to a tourist hot spot in russia's south you know a special report. 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 to the christmas dollar region you'll find long beach 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 in europe fourteen kilometers of it and in the middle
5:32 am
is this lady. the hopes dreams and beauty 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 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. to 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. 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.
5:33 am
there's a big. five minutes to get to the top. if you. 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. tourist store to arrive here in april when the season can continue into october. attractions in the area are geared 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
5:34 am
a pretty good place to start. new flamboyant names here this is simply called old park specially it's not very old it's old but take a walk around and you'll soon get the 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 only less strong than it takes you to script. architect alexander alexei of open the park back in two thousand and four with a membership 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 and as you look around you begin to realize that the culture of humankind is
5:35 am
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 seeing 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 but with him is to build
5:36 am
a space where architecture and nature so merge into the harmony where we all want to be. but 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 things to me about. so that's why we're. going to take the place we can collect it down there. sam. will work from the stir. his crew a muscle and. they've been breeding the tasty mollusks for three years but they're already proving very popular. i can tell you that as far as the fund city is concerned this is a budding market. traditionally people here. know there's
5:37 am
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 xander is an oyster and once they've arrived at the beds his job begins. so we're in the right place. 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 seawall to show on the fingers and plenty of guests. little crowds in there as well as good. as about. them soon
5:38 am
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. hidden among them. when even the needle in the haystack. game is. 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 to see we're going to twenty. muscles a few invading crabs in space 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
5:39 am
romantic setting to try one of nature's great effort. you don't get much fresher than this. not to mention extremely tasty. so i have my long journey over want 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 buy the black sea the tough to find. three beautiful. they've been living in before me here at 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.
5:40 am
this one. is the best way to get quickly. to share their breakfast. club. since. around two hundred fifty. tips the scales are over three hundred but fortunately for every one. of the girls.
5:41 am
can you imagine how many of these there. is still. and that means that he's quite. the tension. of the season hundreds of people. every day. perfect.
5:42 am
this is the. james who gets ready to take. and. possibly mentions. going to be in the first amazing experiences is ahead of my. favorite juncture in a school you can get to russia and i'll tell you it doesn't make you feel when nothing ever will. go this amazing.
5:43 am
although i could do the lesson or two on how to gracefully exit a clue. to do things for. an obese way. go get my dinner. 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 of black sea coast has its own problems with 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. still in and used sacks seven years ago
5:44 am
a name in the queue for of a gave up her practice is a doctor to become an artist and then mara mentalist. recycling is still rare in russia and discarded litter is a common sight nima 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 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 their isn't there let's make a fish ok come on we're making a little addition for name is biggest installation
5:45 am
a sculpture of it's intended to represent the whole of the black sea the 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 start with. some painting. yes beautiful. turf ect and no you should shake it a little bit to let the paint spread to. 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 forward we go james and here is here.
5:46 am
now you have your own back seat that's right into the sea find a nice place for her hope she'll have a happy lie. to me and think we can transform this rubbish into something really rather beautiful and hopefully the people who see it when people think of little bit more chalk away that next plastic bottle on the. sculpture of the black sea reminded me of another thing. that's. busy here. for the full story we've focused on the biggest issues human voice face to face with.
5:47 am
one of the most extreme environments on the planet. and people have to be aware that they're far away from civilization. special and attractive. and. so far have a chance to meet a few of them. but they're in the hills there were plenty of. the least most of the time. this isn't just an ordinary it's a rescue and
5:48 am
a retirement center for injured alex performing on the walls. enjoying her early morning ball. full report looks after more than sixty different species i met up 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 buddy this is the himalayan pan both don't you want to see how long you want to have fun and once it's only ten months old growing like a weed these are fairly now when it gets big. it'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. that's it but.
5:49 am
then if you think bellew's a handful weightily meet his friends next door. is a demanding baby. with a spate of recent the zoo now has around three hundred animals and they've set up a new baby pig cats and why can't we all get along like this. my genes the most use of 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 tiger. and the son of two confiscated tiger so he really is a little nervous. and you can already see. that 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. most of the animals here
5:50 am
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. in 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 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
5:51 am
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 replica 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 hundred. 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 and the old
5:52 am
gears were given a new lease of life. but it really is a timeless bit of engineering. so the power of a 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. now follow me. here is a receiving bunker. this week here that's now the process is already underway plenty of. time for snow.
5:53 am
ok so i've heard of a ploughman's lunch but i'm guessing this is a. milk. bread. this mill may be an example of the region's recent history but their own relics along with 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 one thousand city on the russian coast the greeks who settled here named the city after a 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 that this would have been one of the most popular places back
5:54 am
in the days of the cuz it's the remains of an ancient winery people would have crushed the grapes here 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 falling hours and. 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 about to meet the people who make some of the best. these are grapes yes and this is a very important sign of the. fish.
5:55 am
and his family are almost ready to start making the latest batch of their famous and. 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. my father. oh yes the beginning. is bringing in the harvest he likes to have a few friends and the old greek tradition. goes to the cellar where it's. there was a pretty big barrel of grapes to crush so it seemed to take. the music is supposed to get everyone stomping away in
5:56 am
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 a bit too young. to continue the thing but i wanted to take a stroll across a number of the regions landmarks before i called my plane back to moscow. when it's this windy even plenty of warning won't keep you warm. and his son max can run a.t.v. tours along the dunes here. and also tackling the dunes it certainly beats walking back to the hotel. it may have been getting chilly but as
5:57 am
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 and 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.
