There is a unique region in the Russian North-West, Karelia. Bordered by the White Sea, it also shares a border with Lapland. Its vast territory is almost entirely covered with forest. Everything, not covered with green color, is blue. There are 27 000 rivers flowing in Karelia and 60 000 lakes. It contains two largest European lakes: Lake Ladoga and Lake Onega. Nature reigns in Karelia. The people are outnumbered by bears, lynxes and wolves. Besides Petrozavodsk, the capital of Karelia, the people live in villages with homes and churches of bright colors. Talking about Karelia, we can not pass over one of its treasures: Kizhi. This island on Lake Onega is famous for its masterpieces of wooden architecture. The most impressive one is the 22-dome Transfiguration Church. Karelia has a lot to offer. Whether you choose to visit it in summer or winter, you will discover the authenticity of this destination which is like a Russian fairy tale.
