Russia Petropavlovsk Kamchatsky Avacha Bay
Visit monuments such as Charles Clark and Vitus Bering monuments, which recount the 18th- and 19th-century battles that led to Russian control of the Kamchatka peninsula. The city's namesake, the Monument to Peter and Paul sits just steps from where your ship will dock, while Nikolskaya Hill (where the famous Monument to the City of Military Glory stands) is a brisk 20-minute walk just above the city center.

You won't have time during your stop to trek into the landscape beyond the city, but adventure excursions such as whale watching in Avacha Bay are easily accessible from the port. Additionally, if you visit during winter, get a taxi to the Krasnaya Sopka "red hill," where you can ski just 25 minutes from the center of Petropavlovsk.
You don't have to go into the city (or into the wild) to learn more about Petropavlovsk, as a day at the city's fascinating museums proves. Visit the Science Museum of Volcanology to see mineral samples from the volcanoes that tower behind the Petropavlovsk, Russia, skyline or check out the Kamchatka Regional United Museum to learn about local lore.
Although Petropavlovsk is one of the most remote cities in Russia (and the world), all the country's cuisine is represented. For a local eating experience, however, enjoy a Siberian take on pan-Russian pelmeni meat dumplings, or Korean carrot, a spicy Korean-Russian fusion dish that's essentially kimchi made with carrots instead of cabbage.
Much of the local shopping in Petropavlovsk centers around fur-trimmed hats and boots. However, if that's not your cup of tea, you can also visit Kamchatka Exhibition Center, where you can purchase indigenous totems carved from alder and birch wood, or caviar harvested from local salmon.
