Discovering Russia 07 September 2013 14 823
Mandrogi, an unlikely riverside resort community, provides travellers with the opportunity to live as Russian villagers did in the 19th century. In the 1990's, its traditional wooden homes were dismantled in the Archangelsk and Vologda regions, shipped to the site of the new community, and reassembled piece by piece. Join James Brown as he explores the community and gets the opportunity to ride a horse, milk a cow, catch a fish, set foot in a traditional Russian banya, eat traditional food with the locals and explore the local vodka museum.
Take your wishes and prayers straight to the sky with a charmed blue scarf. Dance to the music of a fiddle strung with horse hairs. Fall asleep to tales of invincible epic heroes. But if you are disrespectful of their holy tokens - don't count on the spirits' mercy.

A writer steps in to save the identity of his people. The Nivkh are Russia’s Northern people, native to the island of Sakhalin.

Now, their chief has a plan for how they might be restored.
People living in the tundra are accustomed to a nomadic life. Their homes are ascetic, food is basic, and deers are their everything. They don’t watch TV or use the Internet. However, their children do go to boarding schools, but not all parents are in favor of them. Find out more about life and education out on the tundra on RTDoc.
