7:32 pm
we're on top of one of russia's most significant logical treasures. just a few meters away is the entrance to the igniter of sky cave and it's supposed to contain some of the best preserved ancient artwork in the country. definitely the place. that hello. 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 rites of passage. you can see this little red claim all of the walls exposed to date but. this cave was used. as a sacred place where they would come. and make themselves all. right
7:33 pm
this is definitely a cave for the brave enough to cave in the cliff should think. it was worth the tight squeeze because the drawings on the other saw it a truly spectacular. and see here this is a huge hole and it's supposed to belong to the figure of a unocal to spread out over was four meters at the root and that's actually supposed to symbolize. the perp and me enough it's linked to this figure here of a woman who can make head supporting breasts. have legs at the back and just across the line of dots showing that they are both joined and. the room has a strong spiritual aura and i wasn't surprised to find that even after all this
7:34 pm
time it's still used as a shrine so this is considered to be wanted not the most sacred place in the whole cave 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 they're still here and it's still used as a place where people can pray thousands and thousands of years and truth was made this may be the most unusual item 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 there for more than two and a half centuries has helped make it famous the world over. custody
7:35 pm
ironworks 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. and say 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 to substances clay and the black is just local sound but it contains properties that when mixed with the all and whole like a very strong form of cost on land and that's why the art work 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 you 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
7:36 pm
and then things really start to heat up so from this boiling hot stuff while. you get the liquid off it will sound and play into this bucket that's about to stead i reckon. so the liquid all. is being poured into these molds here where it will sit between 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 of the way. and once the metal reaches the right temperature the factory can go to work. through this is the next stage nicholai head and now that he's come out of his mold ladies basically down the front of the clothes that sound like everything looks.
7:37 pm
each piece receives plenty of expense attention and some of the finest examples are kept in the factory for visitors to it miles. you know up a you can see just some of the results that have come of two and a half centuries of craftsmanship. produced beautiful intricate models. and here you have the. first made the companies. of course. make. well if you want to see a few pieces of. them just take a trip to chile. this is the region's capital and its business center is home to around one point three million people is about to take its most beautiful street.
7:38 pm
calculations are correct and this is what i think it is we should be in a very hot and that means that life is over here. yeah very good thank you so am i right this is the very center of town. these. towns and you just do you. see a route marked. absolutely culturally. between the city ok. and she's always keen to show its sights. we see we can camel. a very big camel the became but it's still i think he will somehow became all right this is the sort of this bird. i think we're all supposed to be good luck symbols on they all right. yeah maybe this chap as well because he has
7:39 pm
a nice hat that's all there is. absolutely when you travel it could it will. both europe and its territorial position it's become an ethnic melting pot so. you have. european culture mixed with asian culture as well. i was ready to experience some. the first time when there's a celebration in these parts they don't do things by heart. so we've got music it's a very colorful keep cool i'm extremely muddy field i can almost beat glastonbury there but the special promises to be just as good it's called sad and truly. scary on top saw events. and don't be surprised if you bump into a special guest or two. and even the presidential seal of approval.
7:40 pm

7:41 pm
a little. try sometimes please. this is supposed to be the best one in russia. so this is taking. money out of the. cities to be easy. but if you really are. and. you can always test out your prowess in some traditional school. unusual tests. like. the false does the whole. terribly good start. and there's plenty of action for the strong men to. come she's going on. this. mission.
7:42 pm
the competition was going on and i had a previous engagement to attend so strong few painful looking. ahead to two was tapped. out well after watching all that's. definitely made me hungry in the right place i think. i'm going to put a little spicy running. around . 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 overreaching because they have a feud not just today.
7:43 pm
but just a word of warning budgetary and should definitely stay away. but it was. a real best here. one hundred percent with the table still groaning with food but finally what a way for my hosts and someone to it it'd 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 suits. wealthy british style signposts that that's not on the ties.

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 guns and that's not something i've ever had a go at 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 of. the school speaking kind and gentle souls here on discovering russia the pigeons we were after were all artificial and murat was my cock shot instructor. hey bear my name is my at. the club has 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.
7:47 pm
looks unloaded. and i'll take a little beginners wherever i can get it. you never believe it. who . gets like 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. but 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
7:48 pm
a pretty successful first hunt. course. take home a trophy or two you want. a most of my 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 to leaven sweetens wide open spaces and countryside it never hurts to have a good knife on you but if you are going to survive in the wild why not do it with a little bit of style because here they've been making rushes most beautiful blades for almost two hundred. swords are 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 factory dates back to the late ninety's but it's designers have a heritage that appeals to women buffs around the country was going to watch them
7:49 pm
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 brasco that's one of the brass handle and that's what it looks like now. you certainly. don't want to be on the wrong end of that that is shop assuming everything passes inspection the new blades are then sent to the factory artists 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
7:50 pm
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. i just need to use the thing. with my new found weapon the chill of been spoiled in this held no fear is and if you're looking to get away from it all this is the place for you. and that was worth the trip so i've made it to zorra 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.
7:51 pm
to go ahead. hello my name is sarah gave. gays one of the park rangers a tour at coole and he's also an expert on the local flora and fauna. missional puharich is a safe haven for many animals. sometimes more beers skinny would be seen on this trail hide in the grass and wait for tourists well there are many moose in here is here. they're also miro deer and foxes. plus a host of birds mood black and he still grouse and if you find that the ants have carried off ill picnic you can provide a wild banquet of sorts. come. the. war. in russia which actually mean something sour definite lives up to his name. oh. for. sure.

7:53 pm
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 job until he's worked here for the best part of twenty years and now manages the power station on his own 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. power according to how much electricity they need to generate this control. but. most of them all but i did lost the will to get. some of the pitman this reliable in place there's no reason it couldn't stomach. mind boggling to think of the amount of water that's
7:54 pm
flowed down that it runs at almost four tons per second it's been doing it for over a century but still no signs of slowing. 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 to a rocky island 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 a naturally the island itself but what's underneath it and to explore that so i just need to meet a couple of new friends. i just got to successfully leap from here to there. right.
7:55 pm

7:56 pm
