Magadan on a sunny summer day

Magadan is a city and seaport on the Sea of Okhotsk, located in the northeastern part of Russia, in the Far East, the capital of Magadan oblast.

In Soviet times, it was the center of the industrial development of Kolyma – a historical region in north-eastern Russia, covering the upper reaches of the Kolyma River and the northern coast of the Sea of Okhotsk. For many years, prisoners were used as the main labor force here. Photos by: Sergey Dolya.

The monument “Vremya” (“Time”). The sculpture was opened during the 60th anniversary of the Magadan region, in 2013. It is a version of the so-called “imperial” mammoth, who lived in the past in these lands.
