Get to Know Yamal! - 2 days tour, Yamal Russia
Price for 2 days tour for 3 persons
Yamal is long and narrow peninsula compared often with Nenets knife. The gulf of the Ob reminds you a boot. There is a joke that Italy was cut out of here and moved to the warm Mediterranean Sea. On the toe of this very "boot", near the place where the "blade" changes into the handle, stands the ancient city of Salekhard.
Here, on the high bank of the Poluj, people lived a few thousand years ago. The town where we live in today was built already four centuries back.
Salekhard became the capital of the richest gas region and was fully developed and renovated not leaving much of ancient times in a very short time. But it still remains small, cozy and comfortable for life. You can walk through the center within one hour. To reach the most remote city area you need only fifteen minutes. Can the inhabitants of big cities dream about it?
Those who come to Salekhard for the first time are surprised to see such a modern city so far in the North. Indeed, multistoried houses, built recently, are impressive. They look new and even a little unreal. Especially the summer night, when the bright sun is shining.
But, unlike other cities that survived the explosive wave of growth, our city is the mostly developed for life. You won’t find any more temporary residents who came to the North just to make money and quickly leave.
People are settled down here, they live in families, with comfort and carefully pass photographs and family traditions from one generation to another. And they really love their city - the only city in the world on the Arctic Circle.
Price includes transport service, excursion service, admission ticket, the certificate "Polar", dinner and night in the plague.
