The Sakhalin Regional Museum invites you to attend the meeting with Andrei Menshikov and his wife and find out how they managed to get to Sakhalin via an ice bridge in March this year.
In 2017, the traveler made a solo expedition crossing Sakhalin in a Niva car, dedicating his trip to the 70th anniversary of the establishment of the Sakhalin Region. That’s when he was invited to our Museum for the first time. The participants did not notice how 2.5 hours passed since the beginning of the meeting. Andrei shared his impressions, accompanying his fascinating story with photographs, the images of which are difficult to perceive as real such as ice hummocks, the photo of his car meeting an icebreaker in the frozen sea or encountering polar bears.
Andrey Menshikov lives in the Yamalo-Nenetsky region. For years he has been passionate about traveling which isn’t always easy. Sometimes he takes his wife in his trips. Three years ago, he organized an expedition, which was registered in the Russian Book of Records as The Great Northern Way 2016 Expedition. Made the trip with a friend along the Laptev Sea to the northernmost point of mainland Russia Cape Chelyuskin. In 48 days, friends traveled a 16 thousand-kilometer-long route and crossed six time zones.
