Your tour starts with the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, the main city of Sakhalin island. A local guide will be waiting for you upon arrival and will help you to check-in at the hotel. This day you’ll have the first impression of the city and the island in general. Due to its complicated history, the city represents a marvelous combination of Russian, Japanese and Korean cultures.
On the excursion you will see the Regional Museum of Local History in the Japanese style of Nihon Shumi & the City Park Gagarin with its unique charm that now displays a mix of two cultures – both remind you about the Japanese period of the city’s history; the Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ with the largest mosaic panel in the world (14 meters). Memorial complex – the Square of Glory, the Square of Victory, and the Museum-memorial complex founded in memory of the victory in the Second World War will help to plunge into the history of that time. During a visit to the observation deck at the ski resort «The Mountain Air» you will enjoy an amazing panoramic view of the city. At the end of the day, welcome dinner with Sakhalin delicacies won’t leave you indifferent!
