Head to some of the interesting attractions in Kyzyl. The the Tuvan State University is a good place to start.
Traveling in Tuva Republic should be an adventure, so set aside some time to take to the road and uncover a few of the other cities, towns and villages around Kyzyl. Turan, is 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the southeast, and Saryg-Sep lies 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the west.
A good way to learn about a place and its people is by understanding its past. While here, take the time to visit the area's historic traditional villages. For a window into the local culture, make a beeline for Tuva Republic's theaters and history museums.
Visitors in search of adrenaline and adventure can test their limits by joining a hiking or horse riding adventure.
Nothing opens doors in this culturally rich planet of ours quite like language, so be sure to practice a couple of useful Russian words and phrases before you come. "Xotite potancevat?" is the Russian way to say "Would you like to dance with me?" One more helpful sentence is "Otkuda ty?" (Where are you from?).
At the end of your holiday in Kyzyl, put the lens cap back on your camera, spend your last of your rubli on last-minute souvenirs, and bid a fond Poka! (farewell) to this unique part of the world.
