Far East of Russia

Far Eastern Russia is the easternmost part of Russia, comprising its Pacific Ocean islands, coastline and a swathe of eastern Siberia. The northern part of the region is in the Arctic. Far East is indeed quite far (twice further from Moscow than London, for example). But it's home to some of Russia's jewels, such as the volcanoe land Kamchatka and the crazy port city of Vladivostok.

Most popular destinations:

Vladivostok.Most foreigners know Vladivostok as the starting point of the Trans-Siberian Railway, Pacific Fleet, and the Siberian Tiger. Russians know Vladivostok for spa sanatoriums and summer vacations. The latest news features Vladivostok's growing economic role in the Asian - Pacific region. Former military strongholds on surrounding islands are being converted into economic forum stages and educational centers. New bridges with impressive lengths are being added to the sky view of the city. The history of Vladivostok city and Region began in 1860. Today's city population is around 600,000 with main industries being shipping, commercial fishing, and military. Very recently Vladivostok became an official starting point of the Trans-Siberian Highway (M60) that recently connected the Pacific ocean with European Russia. Air routes connect Vladivostok with Japan, China, North Korea, South Korea and Vietnam. Ferries run the route between Japan, South Korea and Vladivostok, carrying passengers and major commercial goods. Vladivostok is a great destination for visiting whether you are a cold war veteran, a Trans-Siberian traveler, or a businessperson. The city offers plenty to see and learn, great views, friendly people, a good mix of restaurants & hotels.

Khabarovsk. The history and development of Khabarovsk is in great part owed to General-Governor Murav'ev-Amursky of East Siberia. He became known as the 'father' of Khabarovsk after he ordered the establishment of a new military outpost on the Amur River. On May 19, 1858, the commander of the 13th Siberian battalion, Captain Yakov Dayachenko and his soldiers built the first few winter quarters of the future Khabarovsk. The Governor called the new outpost Khabarovka in honor of one of the remarkable "pioneers" of the Amur land, Erofei Khabarov. For quite a long time the outpost remained a small service port on the Amur River and a transportation post of the long Siberian Way.

Kamchatka. The Kamchatka Peninsula is the most easterly parts of Russia and Asia. It is 1,200 km long and 450 km wide, with only half a million residents, mostly Russians and the largest minority Koryaks (~13,000). The landscape of the Peninsula is dominated by two mountain chains, the Eastern (Vostochny) and the Central (Sredinny). Being a part of the Pacific volcanic belt, the 29 of its 300 volcanoes are still active, including Klyuchevskaya, the tallest on the Eurasian continent at 4,688 meters. For many years Kamchatka was closed for visitors because of the military, which is still present on the peninsula. Only in very recent times have the frontiers that isolated Kamchatka from the rest of the world had been removed, so that the mysterious peninsula could welcome its first visitors, revealing its many marvels - the volcanoes; the geysers; the majestic, cone-shaped, snow-clad mountains; the boundless glaciers; the immense forests, crater lakes, rivers filled with salmon, and parks with wild animals.
