Amid the Lenin statues and austere buildings, colorful flowers add cheer to the city streets, and lively markets offer brightly hued fruits and vegetables that make it from the hinterland to the table in just a matter of hours.

It is essentially the cone of a submerged volcano called Vulcan Alaid protruding above the Sea of Okhotsk. 

Its near perfect shape gave rise to many legends about the volcano among the peoples of the region, such as the Itelmens and Kuril Ainu. The Russian scientist Stepan Krasheninnikov was told the story that it was once a mountain in Kamchatka, but the neighboring mountains became jealous of its beauty and exiled it to the sea, leaving behind lake Kurile in southern Kamchatka.
