Russia - Eastern Siberia (Chapter)
This is the Eastern Siberia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Russia guidebook.
Endless ice-bound winters, kiln-hot summers, a history of imperial exile and Stalinist savagery – Eastern Siberia may not sound like everyone’s first choice of holiday destination, but there’s much more to this vast region than blood-craving mosquitoes and blizzard-lost Gulag camps.
- wonder at the ancient Scythian gold displayed at Kyzyl’s National Museum
