Mount Kovrizhka and Cape Kuznetsova
Mount Kovrizhka (Gingerbread) got its name due to its shape reminiscent of a cake. It is located on Cape Windis. This mountain rises above sea level at an altitude of about 78 m, and it has an almost perfectly round shape with a diameter of more than 100 m. The absolutely flat top of Mount Kovrizhka is known for its being an archaeological site where ancient people once stayed.
Cape Kuznetsova is named after Captain D.I. Kuznetsov who led the first detachment that sailed to the Far East in 1957 in order to guard the Russian borders. There is a year-round rookery of sea lions and seals, large colonies of sea birds such as cormorants, seagulls, and guillemots. There is a lighthouse bearing the same name on Cape Kuznetsova.
