    Rocks on Rybachy Peninsula in Murmansk region

    Unlike bright tropical lands, the serene Russian north does not have so many colours to offer but its beauty is breathtaking and enchanting in its own way.

    There is something truly magical in the nature of Russia's Far North: a sky which is often gloomy, the coldness of the Barents Sea, stones, a bit of grass and flowers, and, of course, tundra and rocks.

    While most European countries enjoy an Indian Summer, people in Russia's Murmansk region, most of which is located north of the Arctic Circle, have long taken out their warm clothes and spend their free time contemplating the beauty surrounding them.
