UFA, 9 November 2017. /Bashinform News Agency, Alfiya Agliullina/.
In late October, a group of tourists from China visited Bashkortostan. Acquaintance of foreigners with our republic took place within the framework of the press tour, organized by major Chinese tour operators jointly with the regional State Committee for Entrepreneurship and Tourism.
Foreign guests spent six days and five nights in Bashkortostan. During this time they managed to get acquainted not only with the sights of Ufa, but also to visit the Yumaguzinsky water reservoir in the national park "Bashkiria" and the "Krasny Klyuch" spring in the Nurimanovo district.
Returning home, one of the participants of the tour wrote a detailed illustrated article about his trip to Bashkortostan.
First of all, the tourist tells about the different transfer options from Moscow to Ufa, the travel fare, provides tips for travelers. He draws attention to the fact that Ufa is the capital of the Republic of Bashkortostan, the city that connects Asia and Europe.
The traveler devoted much of his article to national dishes, noting bishbarmak, horse sausage, kumiss (mare’s milk) and chak-chak.
The author of the article highly estimated the quality of Bashkir honey. As proof of this, he cites data that Bashkortostan is the only region in the world where unique wild-hive beekeeping is still preserved. Another important fact is that more than 400 types of nectar plants and one third of all linden trees in Russia grow in the republic, he believes.
The Chinese also draws attention of his compatriots to the fact that more than 100 different ethnic groups live in our republic, and that Ufa is a spiritual center of the Muslims of Russia.
From the capital's sights, he liked the monument to the national Bashkir hero Salavat Yulaev most of all. "In honor of him, cities and streets, and even a hockey team are named in the republic", the author writes.
The traveler also advises to visit the Ufa hippodrome, the national museum of the republic, the "Russia is my History" multimedia park, numerous churches and mosques.
