First explosions on the place of the future Kyzyl railway station madeThe construction of a 400-kilometre long railway from the city of Kyzyl to the town of Kuragino, in the Republic of Tuva, in Siberia, got under way earlier this Friday.

The project, first considered 100 years ago, is estimated at 120 billion roubles. To build the railway is quite a challenge since the construction teams will have to struggle with a hard-of-access mountainous country.

The project comprises the construction of more than 100 bridges, 14 anti-avalanche galleries and a total of six kilometres of tunnels.

Touristic Tuva. Tour base "Sai-Khonash"Anai-Khaak and Evgeniy Saryglar organized a tourist business together. Two years ago, a yurt-camp "Sai-Khonash" appeared in Barun-Khemchik district, which, in the words of the couple, is quite popular among people enthusiastic about Tuvan culture.

"Our base is located in a picturesque corner of Tuva, in Bayan-Kol of Barun-Khemchik district, - says Anai-Khaak Saryglar. - Officially the yurt camp opened in 2010. In the Year of Tourism, our base won a grant of the Chairman of the Government of five hundred thousand rubles; we expanded the tour-base with the money, because the demand for our services increased greatly, and the base consisted of only two yurts.

Where to search for Genghis Khan's tomb?

Where to search for Genghis Khan's tomb?"I read recently that Astana historian Gizat Tabuldin says that he knows where Genghis Khan's grave is. But, as far as I know, it has not been found so far. It is also known that Tuvan scholar Nikolai Abayev has long been propagating the version that the tomb of the Shaker of the Universe is located in Tuva. It was in "Tuvinskaya pravda". So who is right?" (Sergei Kozlov, Kyzyl).

We turned to Doctor of History, Professor of TGU Nikolai Abayev for a commentary.

- Gizat Tabuldin is a Kazakh scholar of great authority.
