Сердце Средней Азии: Тур "Внутренний Тянь Шань" с Александром Виноградовым". День 1. Наследие Советов
Когда-то давным давно мама рассказывала мне про Киргизию и про могучий Тянь-Шань, покрытый снежными шапками вершин. В затуманенных воспоминанием глазах её появлялось характерное сияние - из глубин памяти извлекалось одно из самых дорогих сокровищ. И когда звучало такое неблагозвучное для наших ушей название, как Кыргызстан, для меня оно всегда было чем-то большим, чем тяжко перенесшая разва
