My mother and I want to visit Russia someday, and I’m wondering if there are areas there that have a lot of butterflies. Also, do I need a permit to catch any insects there?
I recommend to plan a trip to the Russian Altai (SW. Kuraysky Mt. Range, Aktash village, Ulagansky district, Altai Republic, 50°18'45"N 87°36'11"E). Dates catching butterflies approximately 15-20/VI - 10/VII. It is advisable to organize support. Have to walk a lot. And the second option Russian Northern Caucasus - the neighborhood of Elbrus (Cheget Mountain, Terskol village, Elbrussky district, Kabardino-Balkar Republic, 43°14'43"N 42°31'28"E). Dates catching butterflies approximately 20/VII - 10/VIII. Can be unaccompanied. I think there and there you and your mother will like it.
