As you know, only mountains that were not better can be better than mountains. From the school lessons of geography, I knew that the Urals were, in fact, mountains too, although for some reason no one was serious about them. And on the map, Ural is temptingly located not far from Moscow, considering that I have already seen the Caucasus a bit. In this post, this was the main reason why this trip was started, and an attempt to convince skeptics that the Urals are completely worthy of the attention of travelers. Under the cut, there is a high-mountain lake and the Zyuratkul range, the Taganai National Park, and also the lakes Turgoyak and Bannoye (Yakty-Kul), which are popular with local tourists.
The city of northern people - this is how the name of the city, which is the largest in the world, located beyond the Arctic Circle, is translated. Real miracles take place here, in the summer for almost 2 months the sun is shining day and night, and in winter you can see the northern lights. The city is not tourist, gloomy and scanty for the sights, but to appreciate it, one visit will be few, this is my second visit.
Kizhi Island (it is strongly recommended to do the accent on the first I) - the main pearl of Lake Onega and the center of attraction for tourists from around the world.
Pevek - the city at the edge of our vast country. It is located in the Chukotka region, and is the northernmost city in Russia. Once there lived 13 thousand people, now according to various estimates from 3 to 5 thousand. In the 1990s and 2000s, the city is rapidly dying out, everyone who could, tried to get out of here at any cost. Now the population has stabilized, but life here is very difficult.
And to add a little winter-ka in the autumn and summer photos :) Looking forward, so to speak ... In April 2011, we went skiing in Dombai in Karachay-Cherkessia. Although it took a half years, but I want to share a brief impressions and landscape photography - there are very nice. So what that the photos on tsifromylnitsu made ...
Novoulyanovsk - satellite Ulyanovsk (20 km), which grew in 1957 year around the cement plant, the construction of which was announced Komsomol building. She came to the young people and enthusiasts from other regions. Subsequently, added to the cement plant production and other building materials (concrete, slate, etc.)
If in the Primorsky district Peter go on Seaside Avenue, and then in the Primorsky highway, then sooner or later you can get to the town of Primorsko. The road goes along the shore of the Gulf of Finland through the spa towns, between Resorts and hotels, and further more a hundred kilometers of the Leningrad region (the Karelian Isthmus). Mostly it will be absolutely impassable and broken-down as we passed.
