Petropavlovsk Kamchatsky

The administrative, industrial, scientific, and cultural center of Kamchatka Krai, Russia is Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The city is situated on high hills and surrounded by volcanoes, and no roads connect the Kamchatka Peninsula to the rest of the world. This is why travel to the city is expensive but at the same time, because of the remarkable scenery throughout the peninsula, it is growing in touristic popularity.
