There are still a few places on our planet that have remained untouched by mankind, maintaining their pure nature. One such place is the Kandalaksha Nature Reserve on the Kandalaksha Gulf. Here it is nature that reigns strong with only a handful of human guests having visited – mostly defence lawyers and observers. The State Kandalaksha Nature Reserve expanded in Northern Russia. Although it may seem a rigid and cold place at first, the reserve is full of life and splendor. A short trip around parts of the Kandalaksha Reserve and the islands of the White Sea help us understand just why these lands are so carefully preserved, from what and, most important of all, why.
