ancient artwork in the country. is definitely the place. that hello will my going to live here is an archaeologist who's been studying the cave for more than twenty years the drawings here are from the paleolithic period under believed to illustrate the local tribesmen and rights of passage. you can see this little red claim all of the walls it's supposed to take but. this cave was used. as a sacred place where they would come. and make themselves all. right this is definitely a cave for the brave and not a cave for the claustrophobic. but it was was the tight squeeze because the drawings on the other saw it
a truly spectacular. see here this is a huge hole and it's supposed to belong to the figure of the unocal to spread out over was four meters at the root and that's actually supposed to symbolize. and appropriately enough it's linked to this figure here of a woman who can make now head supporting breast. and legs at the back and just across the line of dots showing that they are both joined as one. room has a strong spiritual aura and i wasn't surprised to find that even after all this time it's still used as a shrine so this is considered to be want to not be most sacred place in the whole kay and it's interesting to see how the ancient religions have come together with christianity as people began to believe that this little figure here actually
started to look like an icon of mary and so christians started to come here and worship and place little icons of their own he'd see this still here and it's still used as a place where people can pray to thousands and thousands of years and it was made this may be the most unusual icon in the region but most of the work comes from one small town with an international reputation. region has always been one of russia's most important industrial areas because of the quality of its oil and all but on this territory there's been a factory that for more than two and a half centuries has helped make it famous the world over. works is credited with redefining cost on its its one numerous international awards and its sculptures appear in collections across the planet but the manufacturing
process has barely changed since its eighteen hundreds heyday. so here we've got some of the ingredients that have made the cost on here so famous and it's all local products basically you've got over here the slightly lighter substance is clay and the black is just local but it contains properties that when mixed with the all in all make a very strong form of cost on it and that's why the artwork here is of such high quality and i know a lady here is making one of the molds that the is going to be pulled into so she's covering the i comb with is of clay and sand once the actual only call has been removed you have this perfect imprint left in the molds and then because really start to heat up so from boiling hot stuff. you get the liquid off it will sound and play into this bucket that's about to
stead i reckon. so the liquid on it's being poured into these molds here where it will sit twenty four hours until it's cooled enough to be taken out so the next part of the process can begin. but wow pretty toxic in here i'm going to move out the way. and once the metal reaches the right temperature the factory altruists can go to work. so this is the next stage nicholai head and now that he's come out of his mold ladies basically just roll down the final eco system that sounded like everything looks. each piece receives plenty of expense attention and some of the finest examples i kept in the factory for visitors to admire. hey you can see just
some of the results that have come of two and a half centuries of crossman ship. produced beautiful intricate models. and here you have the. first made the companies. of course. if you want to see a few pieces of. them just take a trip to chile. this is the region and it's a business center. point three million people is about to take its most beautiful street. calculations are correct and this is what i think it is we should be very hot and that means. over here. very good thank you so am i right this is the very center of town. to meet these.
counts and you just do you. see mark. absolutely. between you ok. you know that has lived. and she's always keen to show its sights. we see we can camel. a very big. but it still i think he will somehow became all right this is the sort of this bird. i think they're all supposed to be good luck symbols on they all right so. yeah maybe this chap as well because he has a nice hat there is. absolutely trimly. it will. both europe and its territorial position it's become an ethnic melting pot so. you
have. european culture mixed with asian culture. to experience some. this ethnic culture first time when there's a celebration in these parts that don't do things for hobbes. so we've got music some very colorful keep cool i'm extremely muddy fields i can almost be glastonbury there but this trustable promises to be just as good it's called sat down to eat. small box carry on top saw events. and don't be surprised if you bump into a special guest to. the presidential seal of approval. someone two is a summer festival that's been celebrated for over a thousand years and i was about to meet up with someone who really knew his way around. the tourism. one of the event. and a someone to exponential. is an old time kazakh feast in the
old days people used to come together for here as a form of communion. being nomads they had a little opportunity to communicate in everyday life. here they got together once a year and married off their daughter so. there might not have been wedding bells in me but there was still plenty to celebrate and bashir in total culture that means masses of food. passed the over at least try our national training. yes. this is wild. a little. try sometimes john cleese. this is supposed to be the best one in russia so. this is taking the money out of the house of the because. you see these two.
but if you really are. you can always test out your prowess in some traditional school. unusual tests. like. the falsities. getting off to a terribly good start. and there's plenty of action for the local strongmen to. come she's going on. this. question because. some of the competition was going on and i had a previous engagement to attend so strong few painful looking. i headed back to
tempt. that well after watching all that sport and. it's definitely made me hungry so i'm in the right place i think. so let me make a little push i like spicy running. when they're throwing a dinner party to surround that never take a seat look at this. fish for a king. this. this is our traditional dish give it a try. there's no need to worry about overeating because they have a feud not just today. another. drink but just a word of warning budgetary and should definitely stay away. but it was.
a real bust here. one hundred percent with the table still groaning with food i finally walked away from my hosts and someone to ring it in been a very delicious day but for the sake of my stomach it was time to start looking at a few of chalabi and six more back to the soup. culture is that so much given to each musician behind the mark when the syrian mossad is going on with a violent crisis in syria continuing to deepen and spread can lebanon remain on the sidelines much longer. limited. the
which eleven's region is full of sprawling woods and forests so it's hardly surprising that the locals have developed a taste for country sports and i had to just outside the capital to see what i could back for a very long time the british have enjoyed shooting small flying things with large guns and that's not something i've got a how to go out until today or i think i'm going to be able to break my duck. or at least. i'm pretty sure that sign means i really do not want to be in this area. being kind and gentle souls here on discovering russia the pigeons we were after were all artificial and murat was my cock shot instructor. ok where my name is mark. because it's been open for more than ten years and it's the most popular in
the area and soon i was ready to blow away some clay. knox unloaded. and i'll take a little beginners wherever i can get it. you never believe it. but i carry on. it. gets look this according to murat the secret is to shoot the clay right top of the arc don't turn your head only look down the sights and before long i was ready for a solo if it's ok so i'm going to see if i can load the thing myself no. and we're ready to shoot. i think this must be the most fun you can have with a deadly weapon and you can even pick up
a few tiny moments. well i think that counts as a pretty successful first hunt. course. take home a trophy or two you want. the most have moved to the shotgun but you don't really want to bump into someone with one on your afternoon hike if i was going to take a weapon with me i needed something a little small with all of the chill of its regions wide open spaces and countryside it never hurts to have a good knife on you but if you want them survive in the wild why not do it with a little bit of style because here they've been making russia's most beautiful blades for almost two hundred. swords a famous for their quality and decorative engraving for more than a century local blade smiths were the only official suppliers for the russian army and navy as well as the court the history of the modern fact she dates back to the
late ninety's but it's designers have a heritage that appeals to women buffs around the country i was going to watch them make. the special. once the blade has been filed and shaped the rest of the components by hand so this this is a downer so this drug has just been put together and checked fitted into its scabbard here brosco but so in the process. that's what it looks like. certainly. i want to be on the wrong end of that is shop assuming everything passes inspection the new blades are then sent to the factory where they're given an individual design this black paint like substance is actually acid resistant
lacka when the blade is galvanized this little bit which isn't covered golden and this little bit will stay solvent so you get the distinct. and then it's returned to the workshop for the last finishing touches. so look at my authentic. hunting knife. just go hope i never need to use the thing no. with my new found weapon the chill of unschooled in is held no fears and if you're looking to get away from it all this is the place for you. that was worth the trip so i've made it cool the highest mountain lake in the year olds which is considered to be one of the most beautiful and unique landscapes in the whole country. the lake is seven hundred twenty four meters above sea level and attracts more than
sixty thousand tourists during high season and it's so clean that you can drink from it. to guy. nobody in. my name is sarah gay. said gay is one of the park rangers it sort of cool and he's also an expert on the local flora and fauna. is a safe haven for many. sometimes small beers skinny would be seen on this trail hide in the grass and wait for tourists. and here's here. there are also many foxes. plus a host of birds. grouse and if you find the ants of carried off ill picnic. banquet of sorts. come. now.
in russia which actually mean something sour definite lives up to his name. well you know for living off the land. and at least dehydration is not a problem. it's good actually if you get fresh you delicious greens you can. get thinner. maybe that would be such a bad thing. with a few opine cucumber snacks in my pocket and headed out of the forest but i was still sticking close to the wall. that you love it's region has always been important industrial center of russia and that noise should be quite close to a special bit of engineering. and as long as you don't look down too often you should be able to get right over it well i don't think it's going to also help in safety inspection but this old bridge result in the right place because underneath
these very rich people woods is the longest serving hydroelectric dam in the country. for over one hundred years the station here it's been lighting up the local community first powering the old fair alloa factory and now it's the only electric source for two nearby villages and chief engineer anatoly is the man in charge. it's like a knowledgeable shop until he's worked here for the best part of twenty years and now manages the power station on his. but the equipment spend far longer than him. but not by the same system. and if he needs to crank up the juice just times the real. circling job much electricity they need to generate this control be about what's about. to see them all that i did the boss that will. get.
some of the pavement this reliable in place there's no reason it couldn't stomach. mind boggling to think of the amount of water that's flowed down that it runs at almost the second it's been doing it for over a century. it was almost time for me to leave the region but before i went i thought i deserved a trip to one of the area's lakes on resorts and now it was time for me to get on the. we were heading out in the middle of the water but together i needed to make a quick change. we're almost in the right place here but supposedly the most interesting thing about this area is naturally the island itself but what's underneath it and to explore so i just need to meet a couple of new friends. i just got to
successfully leap from here to there. right. right so we're going to go diving. yes we are going to dive in one of the lakes most interesting spots will go to a depth of twelve meters. below is the resorts chief don't even struct that he promised we were in for. him once i was kicked it up it was time to get with it. finally ready to take the plug. it certainly wasn't the suits meant we were able to stay down for quite a while and take a look at the island. and
i got to meet the local. both below and above the surface. read the. the. ok ok you all say. well it's not quite the great barrier reef they had there but it's definitely the best i've done in russell oh and i finally got my school it's fixing for the trip. tundra. it's been a long journey around the two of its regions and i found the little or no this is
creeping contagion in euro zone champion germany endorsed ratings downgrade with fears the crisis is hitting the monetary union biggest economy. military maneuvering to brush up plans closer ties with china while america promises to move most of its warships to the asia pacific in coming here. and protest peacefully or pay a fortune russia lawmakers pass a bill that sparked some of the most heated debate and set a new parliamentary record. it's one am in moscow this is coming to you live i'm nice now with our top story and the eurozone debt crisis is getting dangerously close to the monetary unions powerhouse germany moody's has cut the ratings of several german banks including
the country's second biggest lender austria is also affected here's our europe correspondent tess are cilia. granted that there's a lot of skepticism surrounding the moves of the motivations of ratings agencies what has just happened does confirm already existing skepticism on the health. the whole banking economy the whole economy at large of the euro zone and nations the fragility and the vulnerability of certain countries even economic powerhouses such as germany to what happens in the so-called periphery countries the losses countries like spain or portugal greece would be taking in now this downgrade happens on the back of some negative news coming from spain also the leaders of the g seven countries meeting together to find a solution to spain's increasingly dire situation spain had said that it's a banks are losing access to markets because borrowing costs of the going up so much of this is that.
