Villages, landscapes and village of the Amur Region
Most of the nearly two-week trip is a familiarity with the forest scenery, past which is slowly cruise ship. Unusually wide Amur like an endless carpet cuts through the dense coniferous forest, nestled in its completely deserted low shores. Here and there, suddenly holidaymakers there are small quiet village. It seems as though they have long since abandoned for unknown reasons, and are residents of the years in the forest waiting for the return of people.
Short stop in the Trinity, Tsimmermanovke, clubs and other sparsely populated villages and picturesque towns convince visitors that life still goes on as usual here. Nanai, long inhabiting these places – quite terse and hard-working people are characterized first and foremost openness and hospitality – still remain faithful to its traditions and customs. It becomes the most memorable visits to several located on the banks of the Amur sat:
