Kingdom of Alania. North Ossetia

Vladikavkaz – Koban – Karmadon – Dargavs – Zaygalan waterfall – Lats – Arkhon mountain pass – Ursdon – Zgid – Galiat - Vladikavkaz

One thousand years ago a large part of North Caucasus was included in the Kingdom of Alania. This was a powerful mediaeval kingdom that controlled parts of the Silk Road. After the crushing defeat that the Alans suffered from the horde led by Timur (Tamerlane), their towns fell to decay and many places were abandoned.

North Ossetia is a successor to the Kingdom of Alania. During our trip to the republic we shall see not only the most beautiful mountain ranges and passes, but also ruins of ancient towns and watch towers, centuries-old necropoleis which guard the bones of the ancestors of today’s Ossetians. We shall enter Christian temples and visit one of the oldest temples in the Caucasus. We shall find out who is Uastyrdzhi and why his image can be found in almost every home in Ossetiya.
