Dagestan is the Russian Federation republic. Its legends, traditions and crafts are tightly connected with its location. The word “Dagestan” means “country of mountains”. The definition that characterizes the republic perfectly is “the gate of the Caucasus”. For many centuries it served as a bridge connecting Europe and Asia due to its closeness to Caspian sea. But since 2000 Dagestan has been the venue of war. Find out more in the Caucasian Change documentary series.
