National Anthem of Buryatia

Written by national poet of BruyatiaDamba Z. Zhalsaraev

The Land of steppes, of lakes and Taiga forests

You’re full of hearty sunshine all above

So, flourishing in every single corner

Be happy, oh, my dear land I love

Red-berries smell, Bird-cherry lightly breathing

The tea of Rosemary flowers taste.

I’m drinking your sweet air when I breathe

The incense of my Holy Motherland

Accept, my Land, the thankful words from your son

A sip of Holy water grant to me

So I could get the strength of Baikal power

To pass my long and hard path

My Land and me are used to be together

Your destiny and mine are always same

My best regards to you, beloved place

My heart belongs to You in any day

Oh, Mother Land!
