Nikolskoe, Russia Cruise Port

Nikolskoye serves both as an administrative center and rural locality in the Aleutsky District of Kamchatka Krai in Russia. The town is found on Bering Island which is part of the Commander Islands archipelago, and remains as the only inhabited locality in the Aleutsky District. The locality was founded in 1826 by some of the Aleut settlers that were brought from Atka Island by Russian fur traders. These settlers tried a number of economic activities like whaling, but they were primarily focused on the hunting and skinning of fur animals like sea otters. Due to the rich wildlife diversity in the region, almost the whole region is regarded as being a nature reserve. Listed below are some of the recommended experiences, attractions, and activities that visitors to the region could enjoy after cruising to Nikolskoye, Russia:
 
  • Visitors interested in learning about the locality’s history should visit the Nikolskoye Village Museum. The museum boasts of displays that showcase the islands’ natural history, and has an exhibit of the skeleton of an extinct species of sea cow that had once been very common in the area.
     
  • Visitors should visit the recent building in the locality, as it has earned praise by being the only Easternmost Orthodox Church in the region. The church has an interesting architectural design that is welcoming to the eye and also boasts appealing colors and gold highlights.
     
  • Adventurers and nature lovers should explore the largely uninhabited locality on foot or on a cycling tour. The town boasts vast expanses that remain unhindered in sight since the locality has a unique yet peculiar absence of trees. The slight slopes of the landscape make the hike slightly more challenging.
     
  • Visitors should try to interact with the locals found in the area, to find out more about the region’s local cuisines and culture. The townsfolk are quite friendly and seem to be very eager to interact with the tourists who frequent the region.
