Ruskeala Mountain Park, Ruskeala

Explore the source of marble used in some of the most significant buildings in the city, such as St. Isaac's Cathedral, the floors of the Kazan Cathedral, and the window sills of the Hermitage at Ruskeala Mountain Park. This park features a viewing platform showcasing panoramic views and a walking trail leading to the former marble quarry, now filled with water. Rent a boat and sail around the lake or sit on the benches scattered throughout the park. Many parts of the trail can get slippery because of the water, so watch your footing and be mindful of young children.

  • If you want to get into the incredible beauty of the place? Or find a fabulous winter paintings, just like in a memorable childhood films a. Rowe? Maybe you love stone and dream to see marble slopes with a height of tens of meters? Walk through the dark caves, find themselves in a huge cave with incredible iridescent light? Then your road runs to the North, Ruskeale tale of Karelia. Through waterfalls, serpentines roads and provincial charm of old houses of Sortavala takes you to the places to which you will never forget. And that will always reach your heart.

  • Went to the Park this afternoon. Had planned to visit an underground tour and go Huskies. The first happened, the second is not. To our arrival (about 16-00) already dogs was not. Very pleased with the illumination of the Park-after 7 pm, it was an incredibly beautiful sight. But I am unpleasantly surprised that after 6 pm the toilets were closed, although the Park is open until 10:00. Better in Ruskealu to ride in his car, as public transport in the later time feature with two good anymore and taxi drivers blatantly lomjat prices.

  • A place of beauty and strength. You can take a ride on the boat, but they come in the queue ... Need several hours to all pass. The route is paved. Better to wear special (comfortable) shoes.
