Caucasus – mystical mountain chain on the very south of endless Russia is the place I've picked for my Erasmus program. City of Pyatigorsk is the exact place of my adventurous study this year. The city is one of the most famous touristic destinations of the south Russia, being one of the richest healing mineral waters point in this amazing country. City itself is surrounded by seventeen bigger and smaller mountains and hills, and is actually named after one of them – Beshtau. Beshtau literally means „five hills” or „five peaks” (depending how one looks at things), therefore „Pyat (five) – i – gorsk (hills)”, and is spreading to the hight of 1400m. The most famous hill is definitely Mashuk.
