Sitka in detail

This charming sea-side city is considered by many to be the ‘Jewel of the Inside Passage'. The community is located on Baranof Island, which is nestled between forested mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Sitka takes its name from the Tlingit term, ‘Shee-Atika', which roughly translates as ‘settlement on the outside of Shee'. Russia established a settlement in 1804 and stayed until the sale of Alaska in 1867. Sitka is a treasure trove of Tlingit, Russian and United States history.
