Different Countries, Same Gorodki 22.06.2021The traditional Russian game of Gorodki dates back to the 18th century. It was played by Leo Tolstoy and Maksim Gorky. In Soviet times, Gorodki turned into a legitimate sport, and this year marks the 85th anniversary of the first USSR championship. Today, the Gorodki is played not only in Russia and the CIS countries - Russian compatriots have brought the game to the far abroad. It has been found that the Gorodki can unite nations (Karelia and Finland hold joint tournaments) and bring back to the origins: it was abroad that many compatriots took up a bat for the first time.
