Welcome to Russia
The end of communism was the beginning of Russia becoming one of the most popular business and leisure travel destination.
A trip to Russia will help you to discover how the country is getting to grips with its restoration after the collapse of the Soviet Empire. The country is changing rapidly, yet it remains faithful to its rich heritage. The splendor of the royal palaces and residences will help you to emerge yourselves in its past, while the modern vibe and the tourism opportunities that have been developing here at the speed with which Gagarin shot through the stratosphere, will surprise even the harshest of critics.
If you are tired of the big cities’ buzz then Karelia is the place for you to visit. Located 300 km north from St Petersburg, Karelia is an astonishing land of blue lakes, rapid rivers, evergreen pine- and fir-trees and severe what do you mean by severe? rocks. Ideal place to escape the hastle and bustle of civilization!
The outstanding nature, unique monuments that preserve the history and culture of the Northern people, calm and friendly inhabitants turned Karelia into a place of annual tourist pilgrimage. Karelia has many places to visit: Kizhi - an internationally known museum of wooden architecture, hiding away on an island in Onego Lake; Valaam Monastery in Ladoga Lake, Petroglyphs - (pre-historic) 4000 years old rock carvings on the shores of Onego Lake (- made more than 4000 years ago) and Solovetsky Islands, which were a monastery in the Middle Ages, a prison of Stalin's GULag and a museum at present.
Transfiguration Cathedral on Kizhi island is known as a symbol of Karelia. Legend says that it was built without a single nail!
