Petrozavodsk

Petrozavodsk is the capital city of the Republic of Karelia, Russia, which stretches along the western shore of Lake Onega for some 27km. Take a break from the city and head to Ancient volcano Girvas and Karjala Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary/ Uspenskaya Church and Alexander Nevskiy Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Petrozavodsk: Chelmuzhskaya Bar (in Chelmuzhi), Kondopoga (Mount Sampo, Kondopoga Town Museum of Local Lore, & more), Vepsians Ethnographic Museum (in Sheltozero), Kinerma Historic Village (in Pryazhinsky District), Onega petroglyphs (in Pudozh), Resurrection Cathedral (in Shuya) and Olonets Museum of Local Lore (in Olonets). Spend the 7th (Fri) exploring nature at Vodlozerskiy National Park. The adventure continues: take in the exciting artwork at Doll House Private Art Gallery, explore the world behind art at The Republic of Karelia Fine Arts Museum, identify plant and animal life at Kivach Reserve and Waterfalls, and pause for some serene contemplation at Church of the Presentation of the Lord.
