​The Seto Külävüü ‒ Literally, the "Seto Village Belt," Setomaa's main tourism route – winds like the undone belt of a traditional folk costume from one Seto village to another, leading is to special people and exciting places. This is like the backbone or axis of Setomaa, to which are fastened villages, churches, cafes, museums, and the like. One end of the Külavüü is at Võõpsu, Setomaa's northern gateway, and it winds through Värska and Saatse to Obinitsa and Meremäe, making knots through neighboring places -- like Tsiistre in Võrumaa -- and then ending at the Luhamaa border crossing. This imaginary line could also move forward through the historic heart of Setomaa, which is currently part of the Russian Federation.
