„Mongolia enraptures, shocks, puzzles, amazes, and pleases. Moreover, it fulfills dreams of people who are dreaming about vast spaces, taiga and wild white waters, horse’s neighing in the steppes, howling of the wolf in tundra, shaman’s ceremonies, the taste of ajrag … “
This is how Bolesław Uryn describes Mongolia in his book “Expeditions into the taiga and the steppe” accurately conveying the atmosphere of this magic and extremely hospitable country. Apart from unusual landscapes and wonderful history reaching thousand years, it is an interesting country in terms of tradition and customs. Mongolia is a country of nomads, geer (of yurts), of herds of cows, goats, sheep, camels, yaks and horses which are constantly basic means of transport.
