Lake Ladoga is the largest in Europe. With many islands, its area is approximately 18,000 km2. Ladoga's skerries are rightly considered the most scenic spots on the lake. The "skerries" is a word of Scandinavian origin and literally means "rock in the sea". Indeed, most of the islands that make up the archipelago are small and mostly covered with rocks.
In order for such formations to appear, special geological conditions are required. For example, in the lakes of the central zone of Russia, skerries are almost impossible to find. It is mainly the prerogative of the north-western regions of the country, where in ancient times the territory was plowed by a giant glacier. When the ice melted, many fragments of rocks and narrow depressions remained on the ground, which were immediately filled with water. This is how the skerries were formed.
Ladoga Skerries is a unique natural complex made up of over 650 islands of varying sizes. Each of these islands is called a skerry. Scattered across the northern and northwestern parts of the lake, they form countless straits and fjords. They represent a great danger to the captains of any ship, as some of them are barely visible above the water.
