Authentic Chechnya Experience from Locals

Come explore the modern city of Grozny with Zarema, completely rebuilt after its destruction during the Chechen wars of the 1990’s and early 2000’s.  Experience unique music and dance, learn about the history, and see the breathtaking landscapes of her homeland.

The virtual tour of Chechnya by Zarema was excellent. Having followed current events in the region, it was fascinating to hear her perspective as someone who lived through the war and has been part of the progress in the region since. Especially interesting were the personal stories of what people have endured and how they have been able to move on and rebuild their nation and lives. The country is beautiful and Zarema's stories of the people and culture definitely put Chechnya on my bucket list. Being part of a small group of friends made the experience that much more comfortable and enjoyable. Thanks Zarema!

It was so nice to meet Zarema and have her tell us about her own republic. She made it personal and interesting, and left us wanting to learn more. The scenery was beautiful and the culture fascinating. We didn’t know much about the Chechen conflict, so that was informative but also sad. We liked the shared experience of taking the tour with friends who we know and are also interested in Chechnya. It was a small enough group to feel like we were ‘traveling’ together, and not just part of a history class.

My friends and I explored Chechnya virtually with Zarema as our guide. This was a place we were not very familiar with, but Zarema was passionate to share about her homeland so that we could experience the culture and understand Chechen history, including a wild love story from her own ancestors that you should be made into feature length film. This was a real and personal experience, which I thank Zarema for, as it was like my friends and I were all sitting in her living room together. Beyond Red Square goes beyond virtual experiences. 10/10 Highly recommend!

I thought Zarema did a great job. Her sharing about her experiences as a woman in the culture was really helpful, and I liked the cultural aspects she brought out: hospitality, respect for elders, wedding traditions, etc. I had no idea how modernized the capital had become in the rebuilding after the Chechen wars! I also really enjoyed doing it in a group of friends, as it made it easier to feel free to interject and ask questions.
