There are places in the world that are specially created to challenge human strength. Chukotka is definitely one of them. A homeland of the eternal frost, winds and snowstorms, the rocky wedge of Chukotka cuts two oceans to uncover its unique beauty only for those who are ready to face obstacles. Due to its extreme climate conditions, the indigenous people have a very peculiar life filosofy where their existance was initially based on the superior purpose of survivance. That is why there was always a special stress made on the formation of strength of mind and body, physical endurance and agility at Chukotka.
The ancient land seems to respire the eternity. The whole image of Chukotka is penetrated with serenity, sincerity and bareness. Nowadays, in the third millennium, one can enjoy the same landscape once contemplated by the pioneer ancestors: earnestly simple shapes of the shorelines and mountains, straight valleys that seem to be cut out with a graver, 
accumulation of lakes and the cleanest rivers entering extremely cold seas. The hospitality of the native "land owners" will touch feelings of any tourist - the Chukchi, Yupik, Evens, Chuvans with their native dances and songs, their authentic art, carefully kept throughout centuries... Chukotka is a wonderful land able to preserve its life and capacity of prosperity notwithstanding severe polar conditions. During its short northern summer there is a miracle happening every year here in the situation of eternal frost - a real storm of nature renaissance overwhelming us with its unique beauty. The clamour of birds colonies, extremely blue colour of the firths merging into the sky, bright colours of tundra  resembling a spotty carpet...
 
Cape Dezhnev at Chukotka is where a day in Russia starts

For Chukotka it is a real city. Anadyr is like small Moscow, where one can find everything. Besides, everything is "the most" here. The most beautiful, the cheapest and the most expensive. If you visit Andyr for the first time it can remind you a picturesque children's village. The common five-stores buildings are rainbow painted not only for esthetical reasons but also because of the medical needs as the lack of contrasted colours results in vision deterioration. There is a major accumulation of cultural and historical attractions in Andyr: the biggest wooden church of the world - Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral, the world biggest monument of Saint Nicolas, memorial cross of Verblyuzhka mountain where one can enjoy a panoramic view of the capital, a unique museum center called The Heritage of Chukotka and many other places of interest.
