The holiday will open in Tatar and Bashkir and languages, then it will be conducted in Russian and French.

Sabantuy traditionally marks the successful completion of plowing. It is a festival of fertility and well-being. But today it is, of course, not only a holiday of farmers. Here, in Geneva, in addition to strengthening the friendly ties within the Russian-speaking community, it aims at acquaintance with the Tatar and Bashkir cultures and traditions.

For example, guests can eat national delicacies, which they so miss outside their native places. Undoubtedly, this is the Tatar chak-chak and kystyby, and Bashkir honey. Sabantuy is impossible without sports for adults and children, among which the most unusual and bright, of course, is the wrestling at the belts of Koresh.

It is curious that not only people who live in Switzerland will come, but also guests from Russia, Britain, Germany, Italy, France have confirmed   their participation.

Gaskarova Yamilya Bikbaeva, Bashkir from Moscow, participant of the competition “Bayık”, kubyz players  Zabida Khazieva.
