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.
