Dear participants and guests of the forum!

Chukotka is the most northeastern region of Russia, stands out for its special geographical and climatic features. This is the Arctic.

There are many interesting places for tourism here. There is a national reserve – Wrangel Island in the area. Not far from Pevek are Pegtymel petroglyphs, they are more than a thousand years old, a whale alley and The Elgygytgyn Lake. Visiting them, the traveler can say that he visited another planet. Visiting Chukotka once, he will return here.

This region has always attracted its natural beauties and riches. Chukotka is a region where the resources needed for the country are extracted. Here lies the strategic mineral reserve of Russia and large-scale projects in the Far East related to subsoil use are being implemented.

We welcome any initiatives, are ready to support those initiatives that will help the region become a self-sufficient Territory. Here all conditions for career growth, self-improvement are created.
