Kamchatka is a very unique region of Russia. It is a part of Pacific Ring of Fire (circum-Pacific orogenic belt)
and it is washed by cold Okhotsk Sea, Bering Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is the capital of Kamchatka peninsula.
It is a sea-port and one of the most spectacular towns in the whole world. It is a land of Hot Springs and geysers,
volcanoes and valleys with lush vegetation.
