The farthest eastern town of Russia. It has a short but dynamic history in its reluctance to the introduction to communism. A great introduction to Russia as you prepare for your journey down the Volga and acquaint yourself with fellow passengers Why you should see it

Where marine hunting is one of the strongest industries. Step off the boat and into the shockingly warm and unique culture of Uelen people Why you should see it
