    Come to Russia and Visit the Sites of Ancient Man!

    I'm not a very active traveler nor an archaeologist or even a geologist (I still have not grown a beard so I will freeze in the expedition) but I love nature - the mountains, and fresh air. I was never interested in archeology before but if you're into such things then no problem! Just come to Russia and visit some sites related to ancient man located not far from Krasnodar in the village of Il'sky.

    Museum of Rare Stones

    Stones are cold and often not so interesting, but one man, named Vaclovas Intas, did get the feeling, that stones have a lot more to tell us than our drunk partners in local pubs on Friday nights. That's why he did collect stones from all over the world into one place in Lithuania's north side, the town, called Mosedis.
