• Where is the geographical center of Russia
I think many of you watched the movie "Territory". Most of the natural scenes of the movie filmed on a little-known plateau Putorana. This is one of the most remote places of the country, almost untouched by civilization basalt plateau, towering in the north of Eastern Siberia, just north of the Arctic Circle. Here is the geographical center of Russia - Lake Vivi.
Putorana Plateau - strongly dissected mountain range, located in the northwest of the Central Siberian Plateau.
By relief is a combination of a relatively smooth plateau and large canyons and valleys, the bottom of which is often flooded lakes.
The wild and sometimes forbidding mountains.
Putorana Plateau are often called "the edge of ten thousand lakes and thousands of waterfalls". By the number of falls, it occupies the first place on the territory of Russia. Here also is the highest waterfall in Eurasia - willow height 482 meters.
And the weather: the polar day in summer is gradually replaced by the polar night in winter. Spring, summer and autumn are stacked in three months: June, July, August, rest of the time - the winter with temperatures down to -40 ° C. In the warmest month (July) air temperature reaches + 16 ° C.
The area of the plateau is 250 thousand sq. Km (comparable to the UK territory).
For plateau trappean common kind of terrain is made up of huge lestnitsepodobnyh projections, as well as the unique table mountains in height 1000 - 1500 meters above sea level, crossed by huge canyons.
The most convenient mode of transport for the plateau - a helicopter and boat. In this boat trip is quite expensive, and helicopter tours - much like a cast-iron bridge.
