Stavropol region

James Brown explores the Stavropol Region, home to some of Russia's most renown natural springs and health spas. He samples the famously curative local water and takes a mud bath. He lifts weights in Russia's oldest gym, which was built and furnished with its current exercise equipment in 1902, before flying remote controlled planes and learning how to paraglide. Then, he goes mountain biking, plays the organ, visits a Greek lyre-maker, and meets Vladimir Putin's prize horse before scaling a cliff.
