Emu Farm

Five minutes drive from the ethnographic village is another point of interest: a farm of Australian emus (73 kilometres (45 miles) away from Volgograd by the M6 highway). The emus arrived in the region in 2001 as a gift (in the form of a hundred eggs) from Alabama college professor John White, who lectured at Volgograd Agriculture Academy, to Academy Professor Vladimir Vodyannikov, who oversees Krasnodonskaya Farm. Farm tours are available and the emus readily demonstrate their habits. Visitors can feed grass and vegetables to the birds.
