At noon, you will be taken to the pier of Petrozavodsk, located on the shores of Lake Onega - the second largest freshwater lake in Europe. A high-speed boat meteor will take you to Kizhi Island, where you will see one of the main architectural masterpieces of Northern Russia - a churchyard, consisting of two churches and a bell tower of the 18th-19th centuries. The Kizhi Museum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Russia, has been researching, preserving and popularizing the culture of the indigenous peoples of Karelia for over 40 years and now includes 83 masterpieces of wooden architecture: old chapels and houses, windmills and granaries, threshing barns and racks for drying crops…
