Kolyma: A Modern Guidebook introduces tourists and travellers to Magadan Region, the golden heart of Russia. It contains up-to-date information on the region's points of interest, infrastructure, tourist routes and transport network. It also details the history and culture of the region, the traditions of its indigenous peoples, and its climate and natural environments. The book features maps of settlements, eye-catching photos, and easy-to-read infographics.

Kolyma. Even today, the word alone is enough to make some people shiver. Many are familiar with the tragic story of Sevvostlag (the North-Eastern Corrective Labour Camps) and of the tens of thousands of convicts sent to exploit the territory. It is a story full of courage, suffering, and huge loss of life, but one which gave the country valuable and much-needed gold at the critical moment of the height of World War II. These tragic pages are forever part of the region's story, but the Kolyma of today is a much-changed one.

Magadan Region is a unique place for those interested in the history of Dalstroy and the exploration of North-East Russia. The local museums house unique documents and photographs, and the geological museum boasts a collection of great scientific interest. It is worth noting that the region still retains its leading position in the country's gold-mining industry. Its ethnography is of particular interest — visitors to Kolyma can get acquainted with the customs of its indigenous peoples and see real nomadic reindeer herders. 

The local cuisine also deserves a special mention, with delicacies such as fresh seafood — including crab, shrimp, sea urchins, whelks, fish and red caviar — as well as wild plants and venison.

The guide is available in Russian and in English.
