Chukotka is a Russian federal subject or an autonomous okrug located in the Far East. Today we'll learn something very interesting about life of the Chukotka population.
Welcome to Kolyma - a golden heart of Russia!
Let's start with towns of Chukotka and visit Magadan that has the 8 hour time difference with Moscow.
Nature conditions here are not the best : +12 degrees in the middle of summer, constant rain and snow-capped peaks surrounding the airport, that is the only plane place in the region.
The town looks rather abandoned and locals are not always friendly, but Magadan still remained some elegance of seaside towns.
The town is very small, and a wonderful board with honorable residents of the town (where it seems almost the entire population is placed) clearly indicates that people here are not so bad.
Unusual positions of houses may surprise. They are all short, but localed closely and not parallel to each other. Many of them are painted, like almost everywhere in the North, in bright colors, and, as a rule, in many bright colors at the same time.
Welcome to Bilibino. The main population of the village is mosquitoes. Others are Russians and Chukchi. The official population is 5,300, but it decreases by a hundred every year. Most of apartments are abandoned, though prices for them are higher than in regions of the European Russian part. What a difficult mechanism of market economy!
As the only possible way to get here is an aircraft, prices for all goods are extremely high and their quality is very and very doubtful.
Practically all cars have telephone numbers written on them. It is taxi.
