Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk

Though the streets of the modern, wealthy Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk are named after Russian communists, some of its history belongs to Japan. After the Russo-Japanese War of 1904 and 1905, the southern part of Sakhalin Island was conceded to Japan, only to be awarded to the Soviet Union at the end of World War II. The city has retained a bit of its Japanese influence, though its economic success as an oil town means big plans for development and modernization. The streets are mainly lined with drab Soviet buildings, so skip an architecture tour and visit one of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk's many museums, parks, or theaters.

Where to stay in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk
