Ah, summer! It’s, indeed, at hand. It will arrive the next week. June 1st is the official start of the Lena River navigation, but it’s not the point. The important thing is that in summer we will enjoy our major river at its best.
Today I found out that the eYakutia — English Yakutia blog has 29 published posts related and dedicated to the Lena River. Amazed! Elected 11 photo stories worth to see!
Check them all and enjoy the mighty Lena River!
Lena River Views:
1. Waiting for summer in Yakutia/Siberia
Frankly, that’s what I am feeling now. Craving for summer and opportunity to enjoy the Lena River in summer. Here you can see Masha Vasilieva’s summer pictures.
2. Love the Lena River’s being different
Indeed, the same place, the same day, but the Lena River is different all the time. Pictures were taken near the place called Elanka, south off Yakutsk.
3. Fishing on the Lena River – the area of Tabaga Cape
Even when it’s a rainy day, the river looks awesome!

6. The Lena River cruise ship “Demian Bednyj” – preparation for summer travels. 64 Photos.
See how the major cruise ship “Demian Bednyj” is prepared for summer navigation on the Lena River. Like its crew, its members are very devoted to the Lena River and their job. Respect to them.
7. Guess the 1st passengers of the 1st river journey on Demian Bednyj?
Take a look at photographs. These people are always the first passengers on the cruise ship. Guess who and why.
