Our region has opened its doors to families with kids. If you are going to stay in Karelia more than one day, you will get a real pleasure…
Petrozavodsk, a capital of the Republic of Karelia, is a large industrial and cultural center of the Russian North-West. Petrozavodsk is situated on the shores of Onega lake, one of the biggest inner lakes in Europe and has an access to the Baltic, Barents, White, Caspian and Black seas via the canals system.
Karelia is often called a “stony lake-forest land”, which stresses the main elements of the landscape. Wild nature of Karelia, its natural heritage gives tourists a possibility to make an unforgettable adventure.
Going on your own to the islands is easy – the hydrofoils and ships go every day from the piers in Petrozavodsk (to Kizhi), Sortavala (to Valaam), Belomorsk and Rabocheostrovsk (to Solovki). One thing you have to do is to check the timetable.
Incoming tourists can get the information about tourist sights, itineraries and accomodation in Sortavala and nearby regions in Visit-center of Sortavala city.
Karelian villages Kinerma, Sholtozero and Rubchoila invite you to experience real country life with its splendid air and imperceptible charm without city ruffle, noise and high technology.
