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.

  • Do here in winter-spring clearly nothing. Around you some rocks and ice. There is a cave, only she and drags. Very dubious perilca around the Canyon, it would be good to improve security. Almost no interactivity, possibly composed of participants for the tour group better. By the way, excursion to the Underground Ruskealu 1000 rub per person and free entrance ticket 250 (without visiting the underground Ruskealy). Go in the summer should be beautiful.

  • With friends went from Peter in Karelia to celebrate the new year. Stopped at Alalampi, is a micro-village deeper in the forest (from Ruskealy km 40), closer to the border. First of January gave himself a walk along the Canyon. Chic. Everyone enjoyed it. I took another EPG rubles per 150-200, zhmjosh to a point on the map the route Guide and explanation of the history and creation of the Canyon. Very informative and convenient for the company to several people-all spoken aloud, without headphones. Excellent site for memorable photos. For the first time, the theory of "do not go there, everything is expensive," failed. Dear only magnets on the outside route, unduly expensive. But you can jam ukupit cones or another delicacy, which rarely seen ... in General, in any case, the positive impressions. Recommend
