retro. going to the most technologically advanced roy this one safety equipment there's a big pole which you. could just stop swinging that would be right. it takes room five minutes to get to the top and if you managed to cling on you're in for a treat. this is the highest brought 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 for 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 punk 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. and then it takes you to. architect alexander alexei of 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. these architectural structures are filled with substance and 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 pyramids 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 lou to head indoors and visit the punk's medieval town and there's a bird's eye view of the grounds. here we are james this is our territory of r.e.m.
is to build a space where architecture and nature into the harmony 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 the morning catch. one of the best things to me about. so that's why we're. going to take the place we can collect sit down there. sam. will work from the stir. so cruel 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 ate and fish 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 and once they've arrived at the beds his job begins. so they were in the right place. 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 will pretty much guarantees you a seawall to show on the fingers and plenty of unwelcome guests. little
crowds in there as well as going to stop because about. themselves 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 mussels but only. hidden among them. like. mine even the needle in the haystack. gave his crew. this still huge demand for fresh mussels locally. and there's definitely no shortage of them. so this is going to be one of the biggest seafood coffees you have a lightly the sea we've got about one hundred twenty. mussels a few invading crabs and fish and of course the press is. it's not often you get to eat seafood when it's this fresh unfortunately on an oyster boat there's no shortage of experience because. for. so.
many over the most romantic setting to try one of nature's great efforts. you don't get much fresher than this. not to mention extremely tasty. so i had my long journey over want but i'm not sure that even the most generous marine biologist would count oysters all mussels among the small taste of cold screeches swimwear that is intelligent animals are eating. well when you're behind a black sea and tough to find. hello to. say hello to zurich. three beautiful. they've been living in performing 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 the best way to get quickly. doesn't mean having to share their breakfast. with the ladies clamoring for a. bigger. in a row the fights i've won the. rivalry since some. story. around two hundred fifty kilos and tips the scales are over three hundred but fortunately there's plenty of food for everyone. so the girls sixteen.
but you can. but as they say sometimes one man's trucks can be another man's treasure or in this case treasure. what are those who he rather wastes probably in sacks production and some bottles here you can see waists from shoes production just like us. that will also fall into line and used sacks seven years
ago a name in the queue for of her practice is a dr to become an artist and environmentalist recycling is still rare in russia and is a common sight nina 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 turn 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 the house 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 of it'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 start with. some painting here. 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. to let me. let the paint for where it's my the isn't 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 to be the now you have your own face in the back seat that's right into the sea find a nice place behind hope she'll have a happy life. to me and to think that you can transform this rubbish into something really rather beautiful and hopefully the people who see it maybe they'll think a little bit more with a chuckle way that explains that 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 textile almost forgot about my favorite thing to do with the seaside. and it is up here.
with. the global financial headlines kaiser report. so far on my trip i have the chance to meet a few of the black sees marine animals. up there in the hills there were plenty. this isn't just an ordinary zoo it's a rescue and the retirement center for injured performing animals. is enjoying her early morning paul. full report works off to 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 blue the himalayan band boulder colorado you want to see how long you want to have fun and once he's only ten months old growing like a weed he's
a fairly tough now but 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. then if you think the lose weight related friends next door. is a baby. with a spate of recent births 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 my place. my genes 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 tiger. and the son of two confiscated tigers so he really is
a little miracle 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. here have been rescued from poachers 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. just sort of as in a bed living in a granny flat now and. you get
a big spare room with me. i've never seen 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. more 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 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 we just quite strange in the two years i've been traveling around this country i've never seen. 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 service until the early one nine hundred sixty s. . a few years ago the original mill was stripped transported and rebuilt and the old gears were given a new lease of life. there are new parts to this windmill but it really is a timeless bit of engineering. by the wind power and that energy. is then converted down here by these wheels. and this one is part of the original nineteenth century mechanism still running today. which these two parts of the grinding. we get flour the same way it's been produced. and making it is
a really simple process so. they did. and now follow me. here is a receiving bunker. this week here that's it now the process is already underway plenty of needing 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 milk. fresh bread and they were there are. 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 nation city on the recent coast the greeks who settled here named the city after samarian king and its ruins come to 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 that this 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. 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 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 i believe yes and this is a very important son of the. fish. 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 this much of grapes went destined for. my father. oh yes. this is bringing in the harvest he likes to have
a few friends and the old greek tradition. goes to the cellar grates. there was a pretty big power of grapes to crush so it seemed to take. the music is 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 this is good. she was said to continue into the meeting 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 wind 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 months of sunshine and relatively low prices and no troublesome visa refuse 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 warm especially water that russia has to offer.
