"main thing to see is the wide pechora river" Pechora Things to Do Tip by jonnyald

Pechora Things to Do: 1 reviews and 0 photos

pechora river.... in wintertime it freezes, and cars drive across. in summertime various little boats provide transport across the river to the industrial section ,on the opposite bank. in september i found the water to be icy cold, tho clear. it would be suicide to actually swim in the river, even paddling a few minutes was a shock to the system . in the city itself, no milk was available,and it was a city where everybody locked their cars away at night,in little lock up garages,with stout extra locks. i saw a small indoor swimming pool, but apparently it is very basic,not inviting . travel to pechora from the outside,is via the one rail line, and the people were very friendly, although i saw a lot of alcoholics,on the streets, best avoided. also saw packs of dogs that roamed the streets, did not see one single cat, apparently they live below the apartment blocks,in the heating areas,

Address: pechora, komi region ,north russia
Directions: at edge of city, there are a few vantage points, near the war memorial
