Journey to Far East Russia

Far East Russia is conveniently located in the same time zone as Melbourne, making the journey nice and easy. Khabarovsk Krai attracts many visitors and migrants with its numerous unique features, including petroglyphs (rock carvings), art works of the indigenous peoples of the North, beautiful nature, national parks and reserves, architecture and museums. The territory of Khabarovsk Krai is home to the endangered Amur tiger (a.k.a. the Siberian tiger, Ussuri tiger or Manchurian tiger).Most importantly, Far East of Russian is the land of sincere, kind and hospitable people. It is not "spoiled" with tourists, therefore it still has the true authenticity of the place beyond Siberia. We look forward to bringing Far East Russia and Melbourne a little closer.
