What is Udmurtia known for?

national culture

* Sep — a picturesque Udmurt village in the Udmurt National Cedar Forest * Sundur — this village is a stronghold of Udmurt national culture * Votkinsk — a mid-sized industrial city with a big ICBM plant and the birthplace of the great Russian composer Tchaikovsky Other destinations Understand Udmurtia is named for its native Finno-Ugric Udmurt people, who have inhabited the Volga Region since at least the days of Ancient Greece. The majority of the Udmurt's recorded history has been devoted to fighting for survival and rebelling against their more powerful neighbors, the Mongols, Tatars, and Russians. But the Udmurts were perhaps finally subdued by the USSR, which purged most of the Udmurt nationalist intelligentsia and relocated large industries from Central Russia and with them large numbers of ethnic Russians, who now comprise the majority of the region's population while Udmurts now are represent only about a third. The Udmurts are of especial interest to anyone interested in paganism—Udmurtia is one of Europe's last remaining strongholds of organized shamanism, despite its active repression under the Tsarist and Soviet governments. Travelers interested in Udmurtia's native religion should try to seek out a recent Udmurt film, "Shadow of Alangasar." Shamanist structures and sites persist to this day in isolated villages throughout the region. Perhaps top on anyone's list of things to do in Udmurtia is to see the Udmurt national folk theater and dance company Italmas. Talk The Udmurt (Udmurt phrasebook) language shares official status with Russian (Russian phrasebook), but you can expect that anyone you meet will be at least bilingual in Russian. Udmurt is a Finno-Ugric language closely related to Komi (Komi Republic). Get in Flights arrive in Izhevsk from Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Yekaterinburg. The flight from Moscow takes about 2 hours. Trains run to Izhevsk from Moscow (daily, 18 hours), Saint Petersburg (~31 hours), Yekaterinburg (11 hours), Kazan (6 hours), and Perm (10 hours). Glazov is a stop on the Trans-Siberian Railway. Get around See Itineraries Do Udmurtia would make an interesting destination (to say the least) for hunting, fishing, horseback riding, and hiking. Eat There are a few restaurants in Izhevsk where you can sample Udmurt cuisine, but outside of those, it should not be too hard to find some Udmurt pies (perepechi). Drink Try the Udmurt national drink, Kumiska. Stay safe Go next The next stops on the Trans-Siberian Railway are Zuevka, Kirov Oblast to the west and Perm to the east. commons:category:Udmurtia wikipedia:Udmurtia

rock art

Astuvansalmi rock paintings While shamanism had a strong tradition in Europe before the rise of monotheism, shamanism remains a traditional, organized religion in northern Eurasia, including Mari-El and Udmurtia, two semi-autonomous provinces of Russia with large minority populations. Shamanism in Scandinavia may be represented in rock art dating to the Neolithic era Bolin 2000: 157 and was practiced throughout the Iron Age by the various Teutonic (Germanic peoples) tribes and the Baltic-Finnic peoples. A. Asbjorn Jon, Shamanism and the Image of the Teutonic Deity, Óðinn People which used to live in Siberia, have wandered to their present locations since then. For example, many Uralic peoples live now outside Siberia, however the original location of the Proto-Uralic (Proto-Uralic language) peoples (and its extent) is debated. Combined phytogeographical (Phytogeography) and linguistic considerations (distribution of various tree species and the presence of their names in various Uralic languages) suggest that this area was north of Central Ural Mountains and on lower and middle parts of Ob River. Hajdú 1975:35 The ancestors of Hungarian people or Magyars have wandered from their ancestral proto-Uralic area to the Pannonian Basin. Shamanism played an important role in Turko-Mongol mythology (Mythology of the Turkic and Mongolian peoples). Tengriism, the major belief among Xiongnu or Mongol and Turkic peoples, Magyars and Bulgars in ancient times incorporates elements of shamanism. Shamanism is no more a living practice among Hungarians, but remnants have been reserved as fragments of folklore, in folktales, customs. Diószegi 1998 Keräşen Tatars live all over Tatarstan and in Udmurtia, Bashkiria (Bashkortostan) and Chelyabinsk Oblast. Some of them did assimilate among Chuvash (Chuvash people) and Tatars with Sunni Muslim self-identification. Eighty years of Atheist (Atheism)ic Soviet rule made Tatars of both confessions not as religious as they were. As such, differences between Tatars and Keräşen Tatars now is only that Keräşens have Russian names. ::'''Caucasus''': Adygea (Republic of Adygea), Azerbaijan, Chechnya, Dagestan, Georgia (Georgia (country)), Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Kalmykia, Karachay–Cherkessia, North Ossetia–Alania ::'''Northwestern Asia''': Arkhangelsk Oblast including Nenets Autonomous Okrug and Novaya Zemlya, Astrakhan Oblast, Bashkortostan, Belgorod Oblast, Bryansk Oblast, Chuvashia (Chuvashia Republic), Lipetsk Oblast, Kaliningrad Oblast, Kaluga Oblast, Novgorod Oblast, Republic of Karelia, Kirov Oblast, Komi Republic, Kursk Oblast, Mordovia, Murmansk Oblast, Orenburg Oblast, Penza Oblast, Perm Krai, Pskov Oblast, Rostov Oblast, Ryazan Oblast, Saint Petersburg, Samara Oblast, Saratov Oblast, Tambov Oblast, Tatarstan, Tula Oblast, Udmurtia, Volgograd Oblast, Vologda Oblast, Voronezh Oblast, ::'''Siberia''': Altai Krai, Buryatia (Republic of Buryatia), Chelyabinsk Oblast, Chita Oblast, Irkutsk Oblast, Kemerovo Oblast, Krasnoyarsk Krai, parts of Kurgan Oblast, Novosibirsk Oblast, Omsk Oblast, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Tomsk Oblast, Tuva, Tyumen Oblast, Ulyanovsk Oblast, Yamal-Nenets, stand2 Hill Mari region Russian Federation: autonomous republics Mari El, Bashkortostan, Tatarstan, Udmurtia; oblasti Nizhny Novgorod (Nizhny Novgorod Oblast), Kirov (Kirov Oblast), Sverdlovsk (Sverdlovsk Oblast), Orenburg (Orenburg Oblast); Perm Krai speakers 490,000 The '''Mari language''' (Mari: commons:category:Udmurtia wikipedia:Udmurtia
