Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and its environs are famous for their unique natural areas and phantasmagoric landscapes. Geysers, volcanoes, hills, the ocean - all this attracts tourists from all over Russia. Despite the fact that the city is not very large and is home to just over a hundred thousand inhabitants, you will always find where to stay in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

Accommodation features


The whole city is built on hills, so it is quite problematic to navigate through it. Due to these geographical features, local authorities do not divide the city into districts. An attempt to allocate several districts within the boundaries of a settlement was made once in 1973. There were two districts in the city: Oktyabrsky and Leninsky, but they were abolished in 1988 as unnecessary.

Today Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky is divided geographically into the following microdistricts:

  • Avacha;
  • Horizon;
  • Fifth kilometer;
  • Centre;
  • Northeast;
  • Fourth kilometer;
  • Zavoiko;
  • Nagorny and others.

Almost all areas are separated from each other by rivers, hills, mountains or other natural objects. Transport links between the microdistricts are well established, but it should be borne in mind that locals move around on old buses and minibuses. Therefore, it is better to think in advance in which part of the city you would like to live.
