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.
