Correctly speak, Kamchatka is a space. "Kronotskaya Sopka, surrounded by fluffy clouds. Many people say that this is one of the most picturesque volcanoes of the Kamchatka Territory. And you were in this region of volcanoes and glaciers or, perhaps, live here? Then tell us about your most favorite places on this peninsula "- the astronaut, the cosmonaut-tester Roscosmos, the participant of the space expedition 37 / 38 Sergey Ryazansky.

Kronotskaya Sopka is an active stratovolcano on the east coast of Kamchatka. The height of 3528 m, top - the right ribbed cone. The crater is filled with an extrusion plug, there are steam-gas outputs - fumaroles (their especially active activity is noted in 1923). The volcano is composed of basalt and andesite slags, lavas, ash. Eruptions are rare. The lower slopes of the volcano are covered with cedar elfin forests and stone birch, in the upper part there are glaciers and snowfields. Probably one of the most picturesque volcanoes in Kamchatka. At the foot of the western slope of the Kronotskoe lake lies. Near the volcano is the famous Valley of Geysers.
