This republic is situated in the south-west of Russia. Its people love chess more than football. This part of Russia is Europe’s only Buddhist republic. So don’t be surprised if you’ll find here the combination of Golden temple of Buddha and typically grey Soviet style buildings. Its capital is Elista. Do you know the name of this Russian republic? If you still have no idea – ask James Brown and watch his new XL Report on RT.
