Kalmyk steppes of Russia

There are places where it is breathtaking and you want to soar up with the migratory birds. Kalmyk steppes are mesmerizing by the absence of any reference points. In spring, grassy meadows stretch to the horizon, on which wild tulips and wildflowers bloom. These places are filled with Buddhist calm and freedom, which is not found anywhere else in Russia.
