Full description
Your guide will meet you at the hotel, from where, depending on the location of the hotel you will either go by foot or by public transport to the central part of Petrozavodsk. Petrozavodsk is distinguished among other towns of Northern Russia by its Neoclassical architectural heritage, which includes the Round Square and the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. You will see the town's landmarks such as the outdoor statues of Peter the 1st, Gavrila Derzhavin, a Russian poet who was the governor of Olonets, and Alexander Nevsky. You will be free to observe the modern embankment, inaugurated in 1994, that displays an assortment of Karelian granites and marbles.
