The North-Ossetian nature reserve

We climb forbidding rocks, millions of years old, descend into cages full of drip stones and stalactites, walk in on red book bats cuddling to keep warm, and stumble upon a weeping wall all in the same small, yet versatile, area - the North-Ossetian Nature Reserve.

  

The North-Ossetian Nature Reserve is situated on the slopes of the Greater Caucasus Range. Here you can find beautiful rivers, unique plants and animals – Caucasian goats and bison. Hunting in the reserve is prohibited. On the reserve’s territory are situated specific towers – the most-celebrated architectural landmarks of ancient North Ossetia - and a medieval architectural site, a sanctuary called Rekom.
