UFA, 13 July 2015. /Bashinform News Agency, Leila Aralbaeva/. In Ufa amphitheatre near Congress Hall a "Vatan" Ethnopark opened in the days of the SCO and BRICS Summits. Foreign guests got acquainted with national customs and culture of Bashkirs and the achievements of the republic in seven colourful yurts.
