Russia - Eastern Siberia (Chapter)

Endless ice-bound winters, oven-hot summers and a history of imperial exile and Stalinist brutality - Eastern Siberia may not sound like everyone’s first choice of holiday destination, but there’s much more to this vast region than people would expect.
- wonder at the craftsmanship of ancient Scythian gold displayed at Kyzyl’s National Museum
