TRIP DESCRIPTION

DISCOVER SOUTH OSETIA.

We will know the remains of the Alana culture, which came to put the Roman Empire in serious trouble and settled in half of Europe. After the defeat with the Ones, their culture was reduced to the highest regions of the Caucasus.

The mixture of these roots mark with a naturist base the monuments and orthodox churches of the region. And we will share its exquisite traditional food with the locals.

If you are looking to get off the beaten track, this is your trip.
