Where are we off to in this series? Well, this is not that easy to determine because Tatars, the people we are going to speak of, are scattered probably everywhere across Russia – the European part, the Urals, Siberia and the Far East. But the Tatars have their own republic – Tatarstan – that’s on the River Volga. We invite you to join us on a fascinating trip.
