Absence makes the heart grow fonder. -

Experience is in the fingers and head. The heart is inexperienced. - Henry David Thoreau


Bashkortostan, formerly known as "Bashkiriya", is a republic in Central Russia that contains the southern Ural Mountains in the eastern part of the Republic and lowlands in the western section. The capital is the city of Ufa with a diverse population of Russians, Tatars, and Bashkirs. We have also attempted to list resources about the the smaller, less well-known towns of the republic.

We hope this list will continue to grow as more communities become represented on the World Wide Web so please be sure to let us know if you are aware of any other sites.
