To the Endless Vasts of the Carpatians

The Carpatians are worth seeing: their endless valleys and green meadows alternated with dense coniferous arrays. They

12 One Journey to the Wild Northern Land

One Journey to the Wild Northern Land

Taimyr peninsular is the northernmost mainland. Further are only scattered little islands and the Arctic Ocean. Here starts the Anabar plateau - terra incognita, practically unpopulated area, the poorly studied region. This land is characterized by the largest livestock of migratory deer herds, the angriest bears, the tastiest grayling and trout, the purest nature. There
are no roads and airfields here. For all the history of our planet here have been fewer people than on the Everest. What an interesting expedition to this land must be! Bloggers from Russia decided to travel there for rafting on the Kotuikan river, enjoying the untouched nature, living in tents. Check out some photographs from the journey.

Summer Shore of the White Sea

One can get here only by plane. Several times in a summer a barge sails here too, but nobody knows its schedule so it doesn't count. Here, at the shore of the White Sea, is a
village and a river named both in the same way - Letnyaa Zolotitsa (Summer Gold). Many of those who have been in this place describe it as fantastically beautiful.
