Kamchatka 1

Kamchatka, a good place in Russia to visit. It is famous for its volcanoes, the valleys of hot springs, wild bears that don’t afraid men, very snow but not cold winters and low population rate, and yes it’s next to Atlantic.

    Plants, wildlife, nuclear submarines… the perfect tourist destination.

    “and yes it’s next to Atlantic.”

    No. No, it’s not. It’s next to the Pacific and maybe the Arctic. The Atlantic is nowhere near Kamchatka.

    Kamchatka is not “next to Atlantic”, it’s actually Pacific Ocean :) nice pics

    What is wrong with this blog ? Most of my posts do not show up at all, or, if I’m lucky, only after several days….

    Anyway, judging from the posts on ER Russia is unaffected by the financial crisis. Posts covering all kinds of silly things, well, nice, but sometimes you want to see something more to the point.

    Like, why do we not see a pictorial about the effects of the financial crisis ? in St. Petersburg and Moscow and probably also other major cities things are deteriorating pretty fast now. People are being fired by the dozens [like a St. P. hospital: used to have 70 doctors, now in a week reduced to 50] and salaries are reduced to ridiculous levels. While prices are increasing with similar ridiculous levels: i.e. a carton of eggs is now doubled in price!!

    Construction companies go bankrupt, leaving the buyers in the cold and also bankrupt, probably: in Russia the developer starts building only after the full amount has been paid. No refunds…

    The applications for licenses to be permitted to buy guns have increased tremendously: people seem to prepare for looting and civil war !! Also sales of things like matches and candles have increased remarkably.. Let’s hope we’re not witnessing a self fulfilling prophecy, like so often in Russia.

    Es impresionante ver un lugar con tanta belleza. Hace ya varios años leí sobre Kamchatka en NatGeo y me gustó mucho. Ver estas fotos me llena de un sentimiento de paz.

    This looks so beautiful. It’s now my dream to go here. What about the bears, though? I’m afraid of the bears.

    And what does the government ? They are supporting the oligarchs [read : the corrupted leeches ] and their businesses with billions of dollars. Why is Russia supporting Iceland and its banks now ? Same reason – oligarchs having large deposits over there will lose their money, unless…

    Russia is the same as the USA now – money is pulling the strings and motivating the government’s actions. Not the country, not the average citizen.

    You just a fool. Government doing right things

  20. Richard S. says:

    Beautiful photos. Parts of the Kamchatka should be protected. National Parks should be create and wildlife such as bears should be protected against hunters and poachers. Kamchatka is worth saving…

    bears prefer good salmon and not tourists with poisoned bodies

    Yes, magnificent.

    Hi,I’m really happy to see the beauties of this remote region,from the pictures this place looks like the heaven on Earth, but I guess the average household income is far from heavenly, I’m Bulgarian and we have the same problem, we are blessed with our nature and cursed with our politicians, for the last eighteen years they’ve been trying to make us buy the story that the pillage of our national resources and treasures is ” legitimate business” and the profiteers, scavenging on the little money that we had in banks suddenly became respected bankers and business people, obsequious magazines write stories about their parties,houses,cars, as if they earned their money honestly, they buy and sell whatever they want whenever they want.They turned our Black sea shoreline into concrete block, illegal hotels and restaurants pop out every day causing the exponential withdrawal of the tourists,but who cares about the tourists as long as the cash from drugs and other illicit activities continues to flow. We keep turning our lush and lavish land into desert just because our corrupt politicians don’t have the guts to say NO. Learn from our mistakes and try to preserve the beauties of your land, make sure you are the one to have the final word don’t let the oligarchs lust for money bring mayhem and destruction. Protect your land

    Beaauuuuutiful! Hey can anyone tell me what the web address is for the Russian website with the little pig (like in these pictures)?

  29. Bilosh says:

    Nuclear wastings make bear grow extra testicle. As punishment I was one time forced to count bears with this deformations. We have saying: “Three ball bear is angriest when being counted!” Don’t I know!!!!

  30. Matt says:

    Or occasionally get mauled by bears. We had 2 people in the back country over the last week get mauled here (Montana). I would hate to be near bears that were not afraid of me.

  31. Brandon says:

    Right on!

  32. Calli Arcale says:

    What beautiful country! There are some parks and reserves in the area (such as Primorsky), but I understand poaching remains a serious problem. The Minnesota Zoo here in the Twin Cities just opened up a big exhibit about Kamchatka and eastern Siberia, and they did a good job of replicating some of the terrain (though obviously the mountains are absent; they did try to replicate the thermal features, though).

    Apart from all the cinder cone volcanoes, it reminds me a lot of Yellowstone. All those geysers, paint pots, and pools.

  33. China National Land Acquisition Company says:

    Beautiful! Please leave the bears alone. When we acquire this colony we will use the bear testicles for aphrodisiac!

    Beautiful Russian pictures, really enjoyable..
    Must be a wonderful place to live in..

  51. Don’t look at these sites running one or another mens designer jeans sale skeptically, because what they are doing is pretty much what clothing stores have always done (either in a bid to make room for new stock to attract new customers) since time immemorial; only that it is being done online in this case.
