Gorodki

gorod

Gorodki is an ancient Russian folk sport. Similar to bowling and somewhat of the horseshoes concept, the aim of the game is to knock out groups of skittles arranged in some pattern by throwing a bat at them. The skittles, or pins, are called gorodki (literally little cities or townlets), and the square zone in which they are arranged is called the gorod (city).
