Korsakov – Russia

Next port – Korsakov Russia. A 7am start on a “rustic bus”


First stop an amazing St Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church. Very beautiful. Gold, icons. The church was built from roundwood logs.



Such a contrast. This beautiful church and across the road a beaten up old block of flats. Most of the city was…well shabby. The people were friendly.


Next stop was the “Ice Palace” for a pit stop and a bit of souvenir shopping


A tour in Russia would not be complete without a trip to a military memorial – Victory Square and Square of Glory complete with massive statues and tanks.
I liked the love locks on the fences

Next the Sakhalin Regional Museum. Korsakov was ruled by Japan at one time so this Museum was designed by Japanese architect Yoshio Kaizuka in 1937.



Last stop in a long but enjoyable day was a pretty ordinary shopping mall.
