  • On the Suna River are three of the most famous of Karelian waterfalls-Girvas, Kivach and Poor-threshold. But unfortunately due to the construction of local hydropower in 1930-ies and Brooks and waterfalls. And the degree of its lost grandeur. Girvas waterfalls wakes up only when producing spillway with Pal'eozerskoj HYDROELECTRIC POWER STATION. Then this is the magical spectacle. Then, unable to see the natural wonder, which 100 years ago were destroyed. In these moments the waterfall Girvas at times exceeds the magnitude of Kivach waterfall. Well, if HES not with spillway, vdovali, you can take a dip in the zhivopiskom clean place, on the site of the old volcano and waterfall.
