I hand drew this piece with watercolors and ink pens. On the left half of this piece is a geometrically designed map of Poland. In the middle is the flag of Poland. The right half of the piece has four places that are important to me. The names are written in both English and Polish, and beside them are descriptions of why they are important to me. This piece represents my heritage and origins because I am the only member of my family who was not born in Poland and most of my family still lives there.
With the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the Altai Republic's tourism industry has greatly expanded. Although wealthy Russians from neighboring Russian republics are the most common sort of tourist in Altai, foreign interest has also grown in the area, especially due to the area's spiritual significance to New Age believers and others.
Popular tourist destinations tend to be concentrated in the north, where the roads are more accessible. They are also almost entirely located along the Chuiskiy highway, which is the main road from the north into the mountains (although it is currently only two lanes wide). The north is also significantly warmer than the elevated southern areas, which tend to be chilly even in the summer.
Some of the more well-known tourist spots in the Altai Republic include Lake Aiya (a popular bathing spot), and the picturesque Chemal region. More adventurous travelers may wish to visit the more remote Lake Teletskoye or Mount Belukha in the south.

Historical site on Kizhi island. The island is located on Lake Onega in the Republic of Karelia, Russia.
