  • The Laptev Sea, the Bering Sea, the Brentsevoe Sea, Cape Chelyuskin - the northernmost cape, the city of Khabarovsk, Erofei Pavlovich station, the coast on Taimyr, the strait in honor of Laptev. The islands in the North Sea are named after the navigators Shokalsky, Neupokoev, Isachenko, Voronin, Sibiryakov.

  • The first thing that comes to mind, well, of course the most famous place that everyone knows about is the Dyatlov Pass!

    There is also Cape Dezhnev - which is known all over the world.

    Ratmanov Island, though he is a naval officer, not a traveler.

    Yes, a lot of them, just not all (including me) know about them.

  • Russian travelers have made a huge contribution to the treasury of geographical discoveries and therefore their names deservedly occupy places on a geographical map of the world.
