PETROPAVLOVSK- KAMCHATSKY option 1
At a corner of the huge country, at the very edge of the world, the Kamchatka Peninsula juts 1,500 kilometers into the Pacific. Eight thousand kilometers east of Moscow, Kamchatka is an incredible place. It holds such titles as the highest recorded density of brown bears on Earth, the only geyser field in Eurasia and the tallest active volcano on the continent. For decades, the peninsula was shut by the Soviet government to protect its local military assets, but the Soviet collapse caused this regionto open and brought in waves of outsiders. Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is surrounded by nature parks, state reserves and sanctuaries, so this small city of 179,395 has become a jumping-off point for investors and tourists eager to explore the region's untouched wilderness.
