"Peter" in Kamchatka

"Peter" in Kamchatka

“Peter” (as Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky (PPK) is called here) has changed somewhat over the five years that I was not here. Everything has become more decent, more beautiful, the city has become less shabby. Many 4-5-storey buildings were covered with cladding similar to the Astana one - for warmth, for beauty, but so that the eyes would not be frightened (well, I don't know if internal communications were replaced, I think not). Many new shopping malls and shops have sprung up, there is also Euroset (10,000 km from Europe), and Svyaznoy, and tourist equipment stores (they say there is Alpindustria), and its own Biblioglobus (small truth), supermarkets with food and many stalls. 

PPK is not a hungry land, and the assortment of "countries + products" in an ordinary Peter and Paul stall will be the envy of, perhaps, all stalls on Earth. For neither in Paris, nor in Moscow, nor in Hong Kong, nor in Luanda one can find in one small stall so many countries where food is brought from. An analogue can, of course, be the Moscow Globus Gourmet or a large supermarket! And here, in one stall ... 22 countries-producers fit. In another stall, there were 13 types of apples alone, 6 types of pears, all at different prices and from different countries. In the third places, illiquid products were sold - frozen or rotten fruits at 30-50 rubles per kilo. As for the large markets (covered) and supermarkets, there is an even greater assortment - what is not brought to Kamchatka from all over the world! Any household items, any food, the assortment is wider than in other cities of the Russian Federation of a similar population (in the PPK - 200 thousand inhabitants). Plus there are many more local fish ...

So, Petropavlovsk is now well supplied with food and pleasure, there is here and the local press, and books of local production (expensive); but there are no good atlas maps of Kamchatka and guidebooks on it now - no. Book stores are there, but there are no maps or guides in them. 95% - books of central Moscow publishing houses and stationery, and what local cards there are - plans of Yelizovo (300 p) printed in Khabarovsk, PPK itself, its environs (kilometers) and all of Kamchatka (1 cm = 10 km). New detailed maps are not visible.
