Franz Josef Land
These days you are exploring one of the most inaccessible regions of the Arctic - the Franz Josef Land archipelago.
It is easy to meet polar bears here, who feel themselves to be full owners of the Arctic in this place. Out of curiosity, they often approach the very side of the ship and allow you to take unique photos. A 24-hour polar day allows you to watch animals at any time of the day.
In addition to natural resources, Franz Josef Land is rich in stories of Arctic exploration. You will experience the feelings of the heroes of the legendary story "Two Captains". You will learn how Sedov died at the ZFI, in an attempt to reach the North Pole. And on Cape Flora, Northbrook Island, members of the Brusilov expedition, the navigator Albanov and the sailor Konrad, found salvation. After a failed attempt to conquer the North Pole on Cape Norway, the famous Norwegian travelers Nansen and Johansen spent 7 months. And these are just a few pages from the Franz Joseph Land History Book.
Tikhaya Bay is known for the well-preserved buildings of the first Soviet polar station. Now here is the base of the Russian Arctic National Park, from where you can send your friends a postcard from the northernmost post office in the world.
