Discovering Russia: Orenburg
Such a big fun to see your small provincial hometown with the eyes of a foreigner. And twice more fun if he's a British journalist from Russia Today channel.

"The city is famous by shawls made from goat hair and by its big salt deposits. The Soliletsk’s salt lakes could compete with the Dead Sea", says the promo text.
