    Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is the administrative center of the Territory. It was established in 1740 and its name was derived from “Saint Peter, the Apostle” and “Saint Paul the Apostle.”

    On July 1, Russia marks Kamchatka Territory Day. The peninsula, located in the country’s Far East, is washed by the Bering Sea in the east and by the Okhotsk Sea in the west. This marvelous piece of land has an outstanding number of interesting peculiarities.
