After decades of prohibition in Russia, bell-ringing has followed a unique road to make a comeback.
Bell-ringers follow the tradition as no tree can grow without roots. But to encourage the tree to grow up wide sand develop further, bell-ringing concerts and festivals are more and more held in this country.
