In particular on kizhi island. We traveled from of Petrozavodsk on the boat "Comet" on the Onega Lake. Truly fantastic spectacle and the lake itself and the Kizhi Museum. Sit down on a bench at the Museum and looking at beskraj Lake and Museum you feel either and Butterfly "odnodnevkoj"v this world. There in the Kizhi transferred from the village of Tambichezero the House of my relative Butina. Wanted to see, but it was too late, it's time to ship. Come visit Karelia.

The choice of location was stopped at a private house, whose owner Lintula, Constantine has provided us with accommodation in a comfortable environment on the Bank of the Kotkozera, which is located at 900 km. from Moscow and is almost equidistant from Balaam and Kizhi. On Valaam at the check-in we get failed, because the trip was sharpened under berries-mushrooms-fishing. This program we have implemented to the full and with good result. In Kizhi went on the whole day. 100 km. to Petrozavodsk. In the port you can free to park. Meteors to the island go on schedule, quite comfortable and the journey takes about an hour, with spectacular views of the lakes and Islands. Marina in Kizhi, like all the grounds are perfectly clean despite the abundance of tourists. On the quay there are souvenir shops and decent cafes, where you can eat, since inspection of the island and all its sights a few hours exactly. We got just that day, when there was a celebration and we were able to see architecture also master classes in crafts, choir karelov, individual craftsmen. It is better to arrive just in time to visit these days. In the main temple truly worth the wait when monks will sing and Capello. It is worth hearing. The territory is very clean, smoke on the island only in several places that pleases. Island Tour long, but interesting, the photograph and shoot video is not forbidden. Everything is steeped in antiquity and history. Smoked bass, honey and preserves local production can be purchased on site. visit all enjoyed. One year plan on Valday. All good holiday! Our nature is the best!
