White Marble of Koelga

Posted on April 23, 2012 by team

Koelga settlement is famous for its marble quarry – one of the largest in the world and the largest in Russia.

Way to the quarry

“Koelga Marble” JSC.

“To defenders of Motherland from grateful descendants”

Inside the pit it’s much warmer than outside, cause white marble reflects sun rays pretty much good.
