„Gomules“, gnoms, lurk in the crater caves of the smoking volcanoes. When they are hungry, the hunt whales in the Pacific Ocean, catch the animals with their huge lance-like fingers and roast them on the mighty fires in the craters of the volcanoes. A legend, a myth – however: up to 200 years ago, the aboriginal inhabitants of Kamchatka were unable to explain their unsecure living space in a rational way. With its more than 160 volcanoes, numerous geysers and sulphur lakes, this sabre-like peninsula is like a gigantic tinderbox on the eastern end of the world.
