Kamchatka will have its own “zero mile”
On November 4, in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, opposite the building of the Main Post Office on Leninskaya Street, Zero Verst will be opened. There will also be a mailbox for tourists, decorated "antique".
There are similar sights in many cities of Russia and abroad. And in Kamchatka there is "4th kilometer", "5th kilometer", "6th", "8th", "9th", "10th", "14th", "20 th "and so on, but there is no zero kilometer yet. Although it is officially considered that the zero kilometer is a sea trade port on Shchedrin Square (as the beginning of the federal highway "Seaport-Airport").
Now local authorities decided to put a “milestone” pillar in the very center of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky for tourists - as a symbol of the starting point of Kamchatka roads and a wonderful place for photographing, tossing coins and making wishes. It is planned that in the nearest post office it will be possible to buy a postcard or a memorable envelope from the “Zero mile of Kamchatka”, for which the “old” mailbox is set.
