The city's recent history is related to the name of the governor Abramovich, now deposed, and whose renovations have touched upon all aspects of city's life. Due to the colors of the houses the city bears the name of 'summer city'. It was founded by a Russian explorer Semyon Dezhnev in 1689 on the mouth of the river Kazachka.
There are regular flights from Moscow by Transaero, from Khabarovsk and Vladivostok by Vladavia and from Magadan by Yakutia. Moscow flight is daily one, the other ones are served once or twice a month. There is a Bering Air charter flight from Nome, Alaska. Foreigners need at least invitation paper from the tour agency. The airport's location is on the far away coast from the city, so get ready for a long outdoor trip, first leg of which is covered by 40 min by bus and the second leg is on board of a cutter. Cutter departs every two hours.
