Estonia would probably have a hard time competing on natural beauty, outdoor activities, or overall stunning scenery. Maybe the summers in Estonia are a bit warmer.

I scratched Kamchatka off my "Places to not visit"-list a long time ago, when i first saw some of the pictures in Grey's album.

Smart move. It's a popular destination for sport-fishermen. Watch out for the grizzly bears, though.

The only way in which Estonia could compete with Kamchatka is possible in the economic sphere, if Estonia is successfully moving toward a free-market system. And location--it's in Europe. Kamchatka's advantage is proximity to the US, if that's an advantage.

Petropavlavsk is certainly a gorgeous setting, no doubt!

It's on a fjord. It looks like the Norwegian fjords.

I've been down Norwegian fjords and in Petropavlavsk many times. I don't really see the resemblance. It's on a bay with a rather large port; I don't associate that with fjords, I guess.

It depends on the fjords. Not all fjords are mountainous in Norway. In the 90's it was full of Icelanders doing business, which added to the Nordic feel.

Default Look at a map

See what provides what you want.
Vladivostok is way out there and you'll have few opportunities to travel, well, to Korea but it's still not going to be easy.
Estonia is quite nice, centrally located and you can get to many countries nearby.

I'd go to Estonia, if it were me.

One thing we've got here is that it's easy to travel to Asian countries.

Only you misunderstood the topic starter - this thread is a pathetic attempt to counter my claims that Russia is not a total hole.
