The 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.
