Tours to North Ossetia
Discover an ancient culture that thrives amongst rugged mountains…
The Ossetian culture, inherited from the long lost Scythian-Sarmatian civilization, always impresses visitors of the Terek, Fiagdon and Urukh riverheads. Descendants of the ancient Alans have preserved millennia-old traditions by passing on from one generation to the next, unwritten rules for the highlander’s code of ethics. From their drinking rituals, to the simd dances and original shape of Ossetian pies, this culture is chock full of vibrant and unique customs.
Even just a passing acquaintance with this enchanted world of sanctuaries, watchtowers and crypts surrounded by magnificent mountains is worth a visit to North Ossetia. The Large Zeygalan waterfall, the Caucasus’ highest, and the ski slopes of the Tsey Gorge will bring additional reward to those who buy a ticket to Vladikavkaz.
