Don’t miss the extraordinary golden-domed Cathedral of the Nativity.

The unique pagoda-style museum recounts the city’s overlapping Japanese and Soviet history with model sail ships, a traditional tea ceremony and beautiful gardens with artillery guns and a tank from World War II.

Get back to nature at Gorny Vozdukh Mountain Resort, an alpine resort with over 20 kilometers of pristine slopes and summertime trails.

In summer, take the gondola to Gora Bolshevik and follow one of the many wilderness trails.
