Andrey and Masha Sebrant's Excursions

Andrey and Masha Sebrant made several wonderful trips including one to the Sub-Artic Urals in the summer of 1994, to the tiny village of Karelia located 1,000 miles north-north-west from Moscow for hiking in this beautiful wilderness and to Crimea in the Ukraine where there are palm trees and snow! Andrey has also authored a beautiful (and illustrated) slide show entitled Beauty of Russian North. Please take the time to visit these places through the eyes of the Sebrants.
