Meeting with nature: Raifa

Raifa is one of the most beautiful sites in the Republic of Tatarstan. The place got its name from Hebrew and it literally means “kept by the Lord”. Due to primeval silence and remoteness of the place everyone can feel an atmosphere of solitude there. Lots of tourists and pilgrims arrive to Raifa every year. Some to visit a unique monastery and to fetch some sacred water having its source here; the others to enjoy the beauty of the virgin forest with a lot of species of rare birds and animals inhabiting this natural reserve. Visit Raifa  in the Meeting with Nature documentary series.
