Kamchatka has presented 8 unique natural sites for the participation in the multimedia project "Russia 10" held by the Russian Geographical Association and the TV-channel "Russia 1". One of the most important goals of the project is to promote the image of Russia as one of the countries with very rich cultural and natural heritage. The project should create the sustained interest to the country for internal and international tourists as well as tell about Russian unique places.

More than 700 objects from all the Russian regions take part in the project. The ultimate goal is to select ten country visual symbols that will be determined by the general voting on the official site in the Internet and by SMS-voting till the 29-th of September.


For participation in the competition Kamchatka has chosen the Valley of geysers that was proclaimed one of the seven Russian miracles according to the results of an analogical competition in 2008. Besides, Kamchatka is represented by Maly Semyachik volcano and Kisloe Lake, Klyuchevskoi volcano that is one of the highest active volcanos in Eurasia; Avacha Bay - one of the largest closed bays in the world and capable to contain the whole marine of the world simultaneously; the largest on the continent blueback salmon spawning ground – Kurile Lake; Uzon volcano caldera with many thermal springs; Dead forest near Flat Tolbachik volcano (the massif of trees burnt in the result of eruption), and the Commander Islands.
