Some facts about me :
“A travel blog about Russia ? What a stupid idea !”
Many people would not think about travelling to Russia now and let’s be honest, neither before february 2022. But if you ended up here reading this, you clearly think otherwise and that’s enough for me to keep writing and share my travels to help others discovering the biggest country in the world.
Quick reminder : it’s a travel blog and neither my or your political opinions have anything to do here.
What is Satanaya knows ?
An alternative travel blog to help you prepare your adventures to off the beaten track corners of Russia and the Caucasus ! Because there is so much more to discover outside of Moscow, Saint Petersburg and the rails of the “classic” Transsiberian !
So Who’s Satanaya ?
Ever heard about the Caucasian mythology ? No ?
Long story short, the Narts are the mythical heroes, semi-gods and said ” ancestors” of several ethnic groups from the Caucasus (Ossetians, Circassians and other Nakhs). Satanaya is THE recurring matriarchal character in all of these legends.
Satanaya, Sataney, Shatan, Satan etc. according to the linguistic variants of her name is always represented as extremely beautiful, intelligent, wise, useful and gifted. It is to her that the Nart people will seek answers in times of war, famine etc. She always has the answer.
