What awaits you

Erzi's secrets and observation deck After driving through Georgian Military Highway and Dzheyrakh gorge, you will find yourself in one of the largest medieval tower villages - Erzi… Hear local legends and find out why the complex got the name "Eagle's Nest", what is the difference between residential and combat towers, what is "moartol", and also why the place for the construction of towers was watered with milk. And then drive up to the observation deck Tsey-Loam Pass… Here you can take amazing photos and walk up to the watchtower Magoi-Jellocked between huge blocks of rock

The heart of mountainous Ingushetia and an ancient temple Next, you will go to Targim Basinwhere you will see the three tower complexes: Targim, Hamkhi and Egikal… Let's talk about the life of the Ingush during the Middle Ages: about their customs, traditions, crafts. You will also learn what unites the complexes, how they were created and how the founders of the settlements and their descendants accumulated considerable wealth. And then, finding yourself at the very border with Georgia, you will find one of the oldest Christian churches - Tkhaba Yerdy, where find out what influenced the architecture of the monument and what was previously in its place

Something without which Ingushetia cannot be imagined This is, of course, the most famous medieval complex of Ingush defense and watchtowers. Vovnushki… The buildings are rightfully considered a masterpiece of medieval tower architecture. Let's try to imagine how master builders of that time raised materials for the construction of an impregnable fortress on sharp-pointed rocky cliffs.
