A schoolboy led an excursion for foreign tourists

A presentation of the first tourist tours  “A visit to the Scythians” and “etiquette of the Tuvan yurt” took place in the framework of the “Tos Ertine” special project in the Valley of the Tzars of Pii-Khem kozhuun. the presentation was organized by Svetlana Kyzyl-ool, an enterpreneur, and by the open-air museum “Arzhaan-2”.  Tourists from Norway and Switzerland, who came together with representatives of Krasnoyarsk firm “Sayanskoye koltso”, were able to evaluate one of the proposed tour  itineraries, where they were shown the “Arzhaan-1” and “Arzhaan-2” kurgans, the ecological aspect of the  burials was explained, and an exposition of  photos of the gold objects found here was shown to them.

Another group of tourists stayed in a real Tuvan yurt, learned about traditions of Tuvan people, and sampled real Tuvan “izig khan” ( fresh hot blood sausage). the excursion was led by a 10-year-old student of  Lyceum No. 15 of Kyzyl, Oorzhak Dorzhu-Chotpa.

Representatives of Agency of State Employment Service of republic Tuva were among the guests as well.

- Representatives of kozhuun employment centers were among us as well, who have never been to the exhibition “Scythian Gold” in the National Museum, - tells us the chief of the department of analysis of work market, and co-ordination of employment, social support, profession preparation and profession orientation, Artna Chechek Valerianovna. - They were astonished by the elegance and craftsmanship of the jewelry and decorations from the kurgans, introduced in the photo exposition. Svetlana Kyzyl-ool, vice-director of scholarly works of Tarlag SOSh, who has been collecting materials about  the “Valley of Tzars” for three years, decided to organize this year a recreation base “The cradle of the Scythians”, aimed at  educational historical-archeological tourism. - Do you wish to learn about the mysteries of the existence of the great Scythian tribes? Visit us! - Svetlana Ivanovna invites the tourists.
