Leningrad Oblast

(4,000+ reviews from top 30 attractions)
Historic Sites Museums Sightseeing
Overlapping the historic region of Ingria and bordering with Finland and Estonia, Leningrad Oblast is highly industrialized but also rich in natural and historical attractions. While its biggest city and the former capital of Imperial Russia, Saint Petersburg, is the largest tourist draw, there are plenty more places to visit in this area. Its lowlands, lakeshores with swampy areas, and river valleys covered by coniferous and mixed forests boast several nature reserves suitable for ecological tourism. Medieval fortifications, old Orthodox and Protestant churches and monasteries, and Swedish knights' castles built in the times of the White Russia, offer numerous sightseeing opportunities. You should also pay a trip to the famous "fox holes," a labyrinth of artificial silica caves dug during the rule of Catherine the Great, and among the relics of the past don't miss the oldest settlement of Eastern Slavs, Staraya Ladoga. The village hosts the Festival of the Early Middle Ages, where you can see medieval reenactments with historical costumes and traditional handicraft shops.
