Kamchatka is a very unique region of Russia. It is a part of Pacific Ring of Fire (circum-Pacific orogenic belt) and it is washed by cold Okhotsk Sea, Bering Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is the capital of Kamchatka peninsula. It is a sea-port and one of the most spectacular towns in the whole world. It is a land of Hot Springs and geysers, volcanoes and valleys with lush vegetation. Kamchatka is a zone of modern volcanism. It has about 30 active volcanoes, about 300 extinct and destroyed volcanoes, more than 2500 cones, a great number of cold mineral and thermal hot springs and geysers. The Mutnovsko-Gorely Group is located about 80 km south of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on the south side of Avacha Bay. Mutnovsky volcano has the one of the world's largest fumarole fields; and it is one of the most active volcanoes in Kamchatka. Mutnovskaya Geothermal Power Station was built at the foot of this volcano. Flora and fauna are very rich and unique. There are some giant species (up to 3-3.5 m) which grow on a rich volcanic soil. The fauna includes 170 species of birds and 60 species of mammals. Beside numerous rivers, waterfalls and lakes Kamchatka has enormous reserves of fresh water. Kamchatka’s rivers are a spawning place for one of the world largest populations of salmon.
