Karelia lies along the Finnish–Russian border, with a distinct geography, culture, and architecture all of its own. This is the land of iconic northern wildernesses and ancient Slavic sagas. Thick pine forests, tumbling streams and misty waterfalls – the playground of Russian bears, wolves and wolverines. The region’s traditional heritage aside, this remote wilderness offers a range of outdoor sports for adventure lovers all year round. Summers offer opportunities for cross-country hiking, white water rafting, kayaking and boating in the many lakes and rapids. Winter brings its own outdoor attractions with skiing, dog-sledding, snowshoeing and ice fishing. Petrozavodsk is the capital city of the Republic of Karelia. The city stands beside the famous Lake Onega, and is home to the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the National Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, which displays the region’s folk art and paintings.
