The Russian Empire in colour, as it was a century ago, is back again visible to the public thanks to digital technology. The Caucasus as we had never seen it, portrayed by Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii, master of images, on a special mission for the last Romanoff.

Last August, the youth forum “Mashuk 2010”, the first summer camp promoted by Moscow's government and solely devoted to young people from the Russian Caucasus, was held in Pyatigorsk, an old spa town in Russia’s North Caucasian Federal District. The event focused on training for cultural interaction and support to youth entrepreneurship.
