Historic Petropavlovsk

Historic Petropavlovsk

As vast as Kamchatka is, much of historic Petropavlovsk, located along the waterfront, is small enough to cover in a few hours. The Regional Museum is located in an attractive half-timbered house, and its displays, which start with prehistory, include indigenous cultures, as well as flora and fauna and plenty of taxidermied animals. As a vital port city, Petropavlovsk has a long naval history, which is the focus of the Military Museum. The city also has museums dedicated to volcanoes (the Institute of Volcanology Museum; visits should be arranged in advance) and salmon (the Museum of Salmon). Other points of interest in Petropavlovsk's historic heart include the Alexander Nevsky Chapel and the Crimean War Monuments.
