Petrozavodsk

— 30 nights
Petrozavodsk is the capital city of the Republic of Karelia, Russia, which stretches along the western shore of Lake Onega for some 27km. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Vodlozero National Park and Church of the Presentation of the Lord. Get outdoors at Threshold Large Tolly and Chelmuzhskaya Bar. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Petrozavodsk: Ancient volcano Girvas (in Hirvas), Onega petroglyphs (in Pudozh) and Vepsians Ethnographic Museum (in Sheltozero). And it doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Center of Traditional Crafts, examine the collection at National Museum of the Republic of Karelia, pause for some serene contemplation at Roman Catholic Church, and explore the galleries of Small Country Lyubov Malinovskaya's Creative Center.

Sandwiched between the basins of the White and Baltic Seas in Northwest Russia, Republic of Karelia offers numerous sightseeing prospects to fans of ethnic tourism. Its four indigenous peoples, Karelians, Finns, Russians, and Vepps, have created their own distinctive culture over the course of ten centuries. This rocky, lake and forestland bearing the traces of glaciation boasts more than 4,000 historical, cultural, and natural attractions. You'll find unique monuments, such as petroglyphs, the sanctuaries of ancient Saami, and houses and tombs of the "runo" singers related to the famous Karelian-Finnish epic poem "Kalevala." The nature of Karelia, with its rock formations and forested hills rising above lakes, rivers, and marshlands, provides many hiking trails, fishing spots, cross-country skiing tracks, and river routes for kayaking, canoeing, or rafting.
