Abstract

The Kurile Islands became known only at the beginning of the eighteenth century. True, Europeans caught sight of these islands 50 years earlier, but neither the voyage of the Polish explorers Vries and Skhep in 1643 (Witsen, 1946) near the southern Kuriles nor the expeditions of Dezhnev’s companion Fedot Alekseev in 1649 (Krasheninnikov, 1755; Miller, 1758) and of the Cossack M. Stadukhin in 1656 (Sgibnev, 1869) through the First Kurile Strait in the northern part of the chain led to the geographical study of the island chain for various reasons.
