Publisher PressPass has replenished the Far Eastern series of guidebooks "Facing the Sun!" With a new book. At the end of July, a guidebook on the Amur Region will appear in the bookstores of the country, including all relevant information on major localities and the main attractions of the region.

“The Amur region is an amazing region where the distant past of the planet and the progressive present are connected. The capital of the Amur Region, Blagoveshchensk, is the only city in Russia where dinosaur remains have been found and are still being found. At the same time, the state-of-the-art Vostochny cosmodrome is functioning in the region, which will soon take on the role of the main launch pad of the country, ”said Amur Region Governor Vasily Orlov in his welcoming speech.

But not only cosmos and dinosaurs is famous for Amur region.

The capital of the Amur region - Blagoveshchensk - certainly deserves special attention. The only administrative center in Russia, located at the turn of the two states, has a rich history, as evidenced by the monuments and architecture of the city. In the south of the Amur Region there are also quite a few tourist sites. Khingansky Reserve, Murievievsky Park, the famous lotus lake Komarova, Mikhailovskiye Pillars - impressions from visiting these places will be remembered for a long time.

Of great importance in the development of the region and the entire Far East has played the construction of two highways - the Trans-Siberian and Baikal-Amur. These two roads pass through several areas of the region, each of which is also of interest to travelers. Along the way of the BAM there are such unique objects as the Norsky and Zeysky reserves, the museums of the history of the Baikal-Amur Mainline and gold mining. Traveling around the Amur section of Transsib, it is difficult not to get off at each station, because so much can be seen if you walk around the neighborhood. Among the main places to visit are the Albazinsky jail, Burning Mountains, Amur petroglyphs. And, of course, every city that meets on the road is worthy to stay in it for at least one day.



For the convenience of travelers, the book is provided with plans, schemes of settlements and photographs of the main tourist sites. For those who have a particular type of tourism — environmental, ethnographic, or cultural-educational — useful information has also been collected.

“The work on the guidebook on the Amur region was fascinating and intense. There are so many beautiful, unique places in the region ... We tried to tell about them in as much detail as possible, to illustrate each place of interest. It is very important for us that everyone who reads the guidebook would like to see all these beauties with his own eyes. We are confident that a trip to the Amur region will bring only positive emotions, ”said the book’s editor Margarita Polunina.

For the PressPass publishing house, Amur Region is already the twelfth book in the travel guideline. The books “Kolyma”, “Yakutia”, “Chukotka”, “Sakhalin and the Kuriles”, “Primorye”, “Khabarovsk Territory” and others were previously published.
