Sakhalin

Inhabited since the Stone Age and sparsely populated today, Sakhalin was the focal point of an enduring power struggle between Russia and Japan due to its rich oil and gas resources. Russia's largest island, Sakhalin features a wild landscape of steep mountain slopes, thermal springs, river streams abundant in fish, and dense forests of spruce, fir, and larch, inhabited by a large population of bears. Cruising down the Poronay River will get you close to some historical attractions as well, such as the Chekhov Museum. The famous writer spent three months interviewing convicts in the notorious labor camps here, which led him to coin the phrase "Hell of Sakhalin." The Sakhalin regional museum displays materials and documents of Sakhalin hard labor in exile, and its archaeological, ethnographic, and paleontological collections shed some light on the indigenous cultures of the Ainu and Nivkh peoples. Sakhalin is in Sakhalin Oblast. Use our Russia tour itinerary planning website to arrange the details of your trip to Sakhalin and other destinations.
