The harsh, arctic lands of Russia’s Vorkutinsky District were settled when people began mining coal in the area. Although the region is inhabited, the mines, settlements and railroad stations are like miniscule islands of civilisation in an endless ocean of tundra. By just travelling a little outside of the city people can find open, flowering expanses of untouched nature and the cleanest, purist rivers full of fish. Vorkuta and its surrounding areas are popular recreational destinations, especially for those who love to fish. RTG TV host Alexander Uvarov travelled to the Usa River with a fishing partner who knows the area like the back of his hand, having served the city for a long time. Join Alexander and Vorkuta district head Sergey Govorov on a fishing trip to this fascinating region.
