At the northern end of the world, next to perpetual ice there is a mysterious island that houses a deep secret that few know: The ability to observe the past.
Yes, yes ... do not miss dear Russian Lover, Russia welcomes wonders that you will not see anywhere in the world.
Let's talk about Diómedes Mayor, the Russian island where you can travel in time.
Diomedes Major also called in Russian as Inaliq is in the middle of the Bering strait, the marine arm that separates Alaska from Siberia
At his side is Lesser Diomedes, his little sister, who belongs to the US.
Diomedes Major is also the easternmost point of all Russia. It is a place away from almost every form of life, hidden among the northern depths of the north.
On this island you can effectively see the past, amazing, right?
And you will be wondering ... how on earth can such a phenomenon occur? And also, why haven't I heard?
Maybe it will be a hidden conspiracy of the world powers ...
It is something much simpler than that.
From Diómedes Mayor you can observe the past because the international change of date change line passes precisely between that island and its sister Diomedes Minor.
Therefore, although the solar time is the same, its time zones They are completely opposite on each island.
This peculiar fact makes it possible that from Diómedes Mayor you can see what is happening in Diómedes Menor almost 24 hours hours before.
The same thing happens the other way around on the other island, being able to contemplate what happens almost 24 hours later, which means that you can see the "future".
So we could say that these two islands are the only "oracles" in the world.
Apart from this unique phenomenon, also the Diomedes Islands are the only point in the world where Russia and the US meet, since in winter, the water freezes allowing the passage on foot.
This channel has a width of 3.7 kilometers.
In spite of this, the passage of a “border” is prevented since the absence of customs in this area makes it illegal.
Diomedes Major is currently deserted except for the presence of Russian military on rare occasions. In Soviet times there was an indigenous population but it was relocated.
On the other hand, Diómedes Menor remains inhabited with an estimated census of 170 inhabitants of the Inuit ethnic group (Eskimo) who have relatives in the Siberian territory where they sometimes visit and meet.
Dear Russian Lover, Do you dare to travel to Russia and visit this unknown island away from the rest of the world?
The avatars will be hard but it will be worth it to see the secret power of Diómedes Mayor Island Where can you guess the past?
