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.

  • The road from St. Petersburg is long, but it's worth it. Not the first time use the services of skantur, guides offer, those who do not sleep an interesting story from the history of the region. for me it was very informative. by Karelia-first-always "the ecological path": the cost of 200-hour walks among waterfalls, suspension bridge, many generic sites for pics. By the way, a famous place for the film "the dawns here are quiet." heroine bathed in full view of the fascists in this place. Now it is about Mountain Park. Admirable love locals to their motherland (party place). To make such a great tourist center of the abandoned facility. Nature + human approach. The place is indescribably beautiful. Delight! Recommendations: the hour group tour is very informative. BUT! Before excursion take turn on the boat station, so after her ride on a boat on the Lake. Live length per hour. 1:00 boating 600 rub. for 4 pers.

  • From Sortavala to Ruskeala traveled by excursion bus. In ways no more than 40 minutes. The Park was a couple of routes-short and long. Of course very beautiful nature. Here you can awake to see how simple quarry turned in a wonderful park. Here you can go on boats, there is attraction "jump off a cliff". Very much did not have time to look, since the time of the stay with us was very limited.

  • Were with a family in 2016, this tour yet. Came in June 2018 walk around the Park and decided to go take a look. Simply Super. Special thanks to the Guide, very interesting. All recommend. A little expensive, but worth it.
