New Speed Train in Russia
With New speed train Lastochka you can get from St. Petersburg to Petrozavodsk in 5 hours.
The train departs daily from St. Petersburg and Petrozavodsk at 6 p.m. and arrives at 22.55.
It is fair to say Petrozavodsk, the capital of Republic of Karelia, itself is far from being the most beautiful cities in Russia as it is primarily an industrial center and, frankly speaking, there is not much to see there. On the other hand, Karelia is a unique place with ancient historical heritage and untamed nature and ancient ruins and churches can be easily reached from the city. Incentive programs in that region are very popular among foreign guests as for example a boat tour that was organized by our colleague, Maria Adrianova (Roenkova) http://russkie-prostori.com/blog/tours/on-the-way-to-valaam-island/#more-5404. Valaam monastery standing on rocky islands in the northern part of Ladoga lake is one of the most ancient monasteries in Russia that was founded 10 centuries ago.
Kizhi , another place of interest in Karelia, is also a part of Silver Ring of Russia. The pearl of the museum is its world-known wooden church ensemble with the magnificent 22-dome church which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1990. It has the only church in Russia that was contracted without a single nail.
#russkieprostori DMC would be happy to organize an incentive program for you and help you discover that wonderful beauty.
