17 The Nothernmost City of Russia: Pevek

The Nothernmost City of Russia: Pevek

Pevek is the northmost city of Russia. 25 000 people used to live here, 2 500 have remained... Life in Pevek is expensive and boring. The city has two cafes and one of them will probably close soon... No movie theatres, no  night clubs... The city lives from plane to plane that arrive once in 2 weeks.
Everyone knows when the next plane arrives, cause it means that fresh food will appear in the shops. Prices here are unbelievably high but an average salary of a waitress, for example, is about 1000 US dollars. According to locals a 3 roomed flat could be changed for a ticket to Moscow...

Excursion to Syzran Power Plant

Syzran Power Plant is one of the oldest in Russia. It is located in the picturesque bend of the Syzranka river. The capacity is rather modest but it still
works being a monument of history and architecture at the same time. It's nice that there are still people who are indifferent to the object.
