The Caucasus. It is the place of important historic events which is mentioned in many legends. In the Caucasus Mountains, Noy landed from the shrine, Zeus fettered Prometheus and the Argonauts found the Golden Fleece.
The Caucasian frosty winter delayed Alexander the Great in conquering this area.
People from hundreds of nations and ethnic groups live in the Caucasus. Dozens of languages are spoken here. The Caucasus is situated in the crossroads of the continents and here many cultures are mixed.
But all of that seems to be a drop in the endless sea. Thousands of cultural items: songs, dances, stories and legends have remained far from our sight, hidden in the towns and villages.
The aim of this website is to fill the gaps. Many topics of culture, art, thinking and traditions of people from the Caucasus region are described here.
