7 phenomena that can be seen in the Krasnoyarsk Territory
✨ September: northern lights in the North of the region.
The season of the northern lights begins only in September. But in September it is warmer, and therefore more convenient for photo hunting. Did you know that the northern lights can also be heard? Scientists say that it is accompanied by a sound similar to pops.
✨ November: reindeer migration from the Taimyr Peninsula to Evenkia.
These beautiful animals move in small groups and even individually. All of them, under the instinct, at the end of autumn move south to the tundra forest and taiga, where it is easier for them to survive the cold winter. Each year, deer overcome about 3,000 kilometers, in the summer fleeing from blood-sucking insects, and in the winter - from starfishes. The most successful deer, who have survived to old age, pass one and a half earthly equators by the end of their lives.
✨ Late November to mid January: polar night in Taimyr.
Dark time for northerners lasting 45 days. The daylight hours do not exceed 4 hours. Yes, and it’s difficult to call it “light” ... So ... Twilight ... In short, not for coddles.
✨ January - March: transparent ice on the Krasnoyarsk Sea.
Right on the Bay of Biryusin is the most beautiful and largest natural ice rink. Here you can not only skate, but also endlessly peer into the abyss under the ice. People call it Yenisei meditation.
✨ Mid-May-Mid-July: a polar day in the High North.
At this time, the sun does not go beyond the horizon, and on the streets of the city you can often see local residents making night walks. Somepeople cannot delight sufficiently that it is always light, and some complain of insomnia.
✨ June: flowering of Siberian globeflower in Ergaki.
Everywhere you can see orange flashes against the backdrop of eternal cliffs. It is really marvellous.
✨ June: a very noisy ice drift in Dudinka.
As they say, it is better once to see and to hear. At least in the video. By the way, the Duda seaport is the only one in the world that is flooded annually during the ice drift.
