The Altai Biosphere Reserve occupies a vast territory in the north-east of the Altai Republic in Turochaksky and Ulagansky districts. Together with the Katun Reserve it forms the so-called Golden Mountains of Altai the natural object included into the UNESCO World Heritage List.


The first description of the Shira Lake was made by the famous traveler, Academician Peter Pallas who visited these places in 1770 and 1772.


Shira, Itkul and Shunet are only three of the great variety of beautiful lakes making Shirinsky District of Khakassia surprisingly similar to Karelia.


Many of tourists go to the Belye Lake not only for bathing and pale golden tan, but also in search of hiking romance - fresh air of the steppe, baked potatoes, playing beach volleyball and singing songs around the fire until dawn.


It is best to visit the temple complex in summer (although it is recommended to bring along an umbrella, as this time of the year is the rainiest one in Buryatia). Thus, you will be able to visit the temple complex and the dugan of Aryabala, as well as the holy place at the Ranzhur Rock.


The lake and its numerous tributaries (over 80) are a paradise for fishermen. The lake has such species of fish as perch, pike, burbot, taimen, whitefish and Teletsk grayling - the most wanted prey.


Gorno-Altaisk is the only inhabited locality of Altai with the status of a town.


Saylyugemsky National Park has been organized in the Kosh-Agachsky District of the Altai Republic, in the centre of the Altai-Sayan mountainous country, only recently. This is a unique natural region of Russia at the border with Mongolia, China and Kazakhstan.


The trails of the ski resort Kolasportland are laid on the northern slope of the mountain with the unpronounceable name Aikuaivenchorr (1010 m) that is located right within the city limits of Kirovsk.


The Khibiny Mountains on the Kola Peninsula are relatively young, they are only 350 million years old. And they are relatively low - no higher than 1,200 meters (the top is Yudychvumchorr), although they still grow by several millimeters each year.


Bogdinsko-Baskunchaksky Reserve is one of the youngest in Russia, it has existed since 1997. Even by the name you can guess the two main natural objects protected by the reserve the Bolshoe Bogdo Mountain and the salt Baskunchak Lake.


Pavlovsky Posad near Moscow is known far beyond its borders thanks largely to famous Pavlovsky Posad kerchiefs and shawls. The district authorities decided not to focus only on the well-known brand and showed to journalists and travel agencies representatives some things in the city and its surroundings that may also be interesting for tourists.

The borders of the majority of Russian national parks are marked with inconspicuous signs and pass through non-obvious lines, ravines and rivers. The border of the Samarskaya Luka National Park is a heavy line drawn by nature itself, it is visible even from the space.


Lena Pillars is a natural creation, so powerful and incredible that the impression this monument produces is difficult to express in words. The toothed ridge stretching for many kilometers stands on the bank of the Lena River, two hundred kilometers from Yakutsk. These stone giants are half a million years old - wind and water have converted the relatively soft Cambrian limestones into solid rock during thousands of years.


Veliky Novgorod: climate, festivals, souvenirs.


Novgorod the great new and ancient city. Once it was the first Russian window to Europe, the predecessor of St. Petersburg.


One of the brightest features of the Seliger Lake is a huge number of islands per a relatively small area of water. To be more precise, there are one hundred sixty eight islands on the Seliger Lake, and when you look at the water surface you see that the islands are not scattered around the water, but water flows between the pieces of land. The largest island is Khachin.


Bubonitsy could be called an extinct village: already in 1985 there were only two permanent residents among all twenty-two houses an old man and an old woman, a brother and a sister...
