In the vast territory of Russia, you can find thousands of picturesque places that impress and attract tourists. However, we continue to look for something new abroad, sometimes without even knowing that it is quite possible to find exactly the same or at least very similar locations without going abroad. We bring to your attention 4 picturesque places in the domestic open spaces, which are strikingly similar to foreign landscapes.
1. Chuisky tract
One of the most picturesque roads not only in Russia, but also in the world, connects our country and Asia, starting in Novosibirsk and ending in Mongolia. Over a thousand kilometers long, you can see landscapes surprisingly similar to the Balkans, Jordan, and even American highways. Altai landscapes will only add to the impressions of this beautiful route.
2. Lake Sea Eye
In the Republic of Mari El, not far from the village of Shariboxad, there is a lake with the interesting name Sea Eye, which got its name because of its beautiful shape and blue hue. And many tourists find it similar to the Black Lake in Montenegrin Zabljak. True, swimming in a domestic lake 20 thousand years old is unlikely to work without risk to life: the thing is that it is too deep - up to 36 meters, and underground currents flow in it, which can simply drag an unwary vacationer under the water.
3. Furugkelma Island
The reserved island of Furugelm is a real pearl of Primorye, located only 110 kilometers from Vladivostok. Not only vacationers like to go here on vacation, but also those who want to visit Indonesia or Thailand without going abroad - the views are very similar. In addition, this place has one more honorary title - Furugelma is the southernmost island of Russia.
4. Long mountains
A very picturesque place can be considered the Dolgie Mountains - hills up to 200 meters high, which are located in the Orenburg region. In fact, they are considered the beginning of the Ural Range. However, tourists and locals alike find a decent resemblance of the domestic highlands to the hills of New Zealand. Maybe they are not so green and bright - after all, Russia has a colder climate - however, in order to see them with your own eyes, you do not need to have a passport.
