Sakhalin is a real land, but not a small island like the Kuril Islands lost in the Pacific Ocean, but a large and distinct region with its own railway network and industry.
This is the largest island in Russia, with an area of more than 76 km². It is located in the east of the country and is washed by the Japanese and Okhotsk seas.
On Sakhalin, the most interesting natural attractions are almost untouched by nature; diverse, unlike the mainland Far East and landscaped by mountains and sea landscapes, there are also historical objects here. Sakhalin is the place where Russian culture was most closely associated with Japanese, and some traces of their interaction are still visible.
A storehouse of natural resources, an island with unique flora and fauna – all this is beautiful and contradictory Sakhalin.
