Rybachy Peninsula: The Edge of the World

Rybachy-Peninsula1

Rybachy Peninsula is the edge of the European part of Russia. This amazing place, forgotten by the modern civilization, combines the eternal movement of the sea and the solid rock peace. Surprising beauty of the lakes, waterfalls and sand dunes will not leave you indifferent.

Before the dissolution of the Soviet Union the territory was heavily militarized because of the immediate vicinity of Norway, a NATO member. Now the military is removed, however, as of 2005 the territory is still closed to foreigners.

Russian photographer Dmitry Chistoprudov has recently visited the place and captured the beauty of Rybachy Peninsula in the series of photos “Rybachy: The Edge of the World.”

“Rybachy Peninsula is the soul of the Kola peninsula. Anyone who was here, would confirm that the Kola Peninsula is enigmatic. It makes you wanna come back at least once a year, possibly more often.”
