There is a village in Urals named PARIS.This village was named after France`s capital city of Paris by Urals cossacks in commemoration of conquest of Paris by russian troops in the Year 1813 (Napoleon wars). Uralian village of Paris is inhabited by a small-numbered tribe of Nagaybaks. The interesting thing about the tribe is that they speak tatar language but adopted russian orthodox religion. Nagaybaks cossacks` village of Paris is a rich and well establishe village. Cossacks traditions are thoroughly kept and revived in the region. Not long ago a mobile communication tower in the form of Eiffel Tower was fixed in the village to allow local peole using modern mobile technologies. Pictured: Eiffel Tower of Paris village.
