Sakhalin: Korsakov

Korsakov is the second biggest town in Sakhalin and also the biggest port. There are several spectacular and panoramic cliff overlooks of the port and all the cranes and loading facilities. The town itself however is pretty sad-looking and rather uninspiring – even Lenin statue is kind of small and Lenin looks shriveled and tired and aluminum-made. Soviet-style drab housing adds to the overall depressive feelings.
