(4/5 based on a few reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: museums
Shyoltozero is a rural locality in Prionezhsky District of the Republic of Karelia, Russia, located close to the shore of Lake Onega, 84km south of Petrozavodsk, the capital of the republic. Shyoltozero is the cultural center of the north Veps people, and during 1994–2004 it was the territorial center of Veps National Volost.EtymologyIn the place name Šoutar’v one can see the sound change *l > u, which has occurred in Veps throughout . When considered together with the testimony of old Russian maps, it is clear that the earlier Veps name has been *Šoltjärvi. Thus this place name has nothing to do with the Finnish word soutaa, and the frequently used Finnish form Soutjärvi is based on an incorrect etymology.HistoryShyoltozero was mentioned for the first time in 1453 by the Archbishop of Novgorod. Originally it was situated 6km to the southwest of the present location, by the lake which on older Russian maps is showns as Shyoltozero. At some point, the inhabitants moved to where Shyoltozero is now located, while the original site became known as Kodijär’v (Veps for "home lake").Before the 1920s, Shyoltozero and neighboring villages formed the Shyoltozero pogost, which was a part of Petrozavodsky Uyezd. With the advent of the Soviet state, the pogost became a part of Shyoltozersky District, which was dissolved in 1957 and became a part of Prionezhsky District.
