City Park and Embankment, Petrozavodsk

Sit back, relax, and enjoy views of the lake, or walk among a collection of modern sculptures at City Park and Embankment. Look for the statue of the fishermen, a gift from the city of Duluth, Minnesota and the first modern sculpture in the park that started the tradition of exchanging sculptures with sister-cities. The park is perfect for open-air activities and features some exercise machines you can use for free. Use the free Wi-Fi available throughout and enjoy a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants. The park also hosts big city events and its pier is a starting point for a number of boat tours.

    A wonderful promenade of beautiful Lake. Always full of people: day-tourists, residents and tourists in the evening. Plenty of benches for resting. On the embankment of the sculptures and memorials. At many souvenir shops.

    Neat clean promenade, walk from one end to the other which takes about 30 minutes. Great views of the Lake.

    Perhaps the most beautiful place in Petrozavodsk. Of course, area 3 theatres (the former Cathedral square), also beautiful, but walking there is not very convenient. On the waterfront of Lake creates space and a variety of monuments from all over the world (sometimes very unusual!) do not give the walk become boring. Add local color wedding taking place here (Wedding Palace immediately), neighborhood houses the private sector (sometimes very old) with new hotels and local residents who catch fish directly from the embankment. All in all, a very interesting place for strolling.
