Visit historic sites. Enjoy the natural scenery. Tasting rustic cheeses.
Lake Ladoga is the largest lake in Europe and the second largest in Russia. However, this is not the only reason why it is worth visiting!
The coast of Lake Ladoga is full of incredibly historical places. There you can plunge into the Middle Ages, Tsarist times and the harsh times of the Great Patriotic War, when the "Road of Life", which connected the besieged Leningrad with the rest of the country, was operating on Ladoga Lake.
Besides, during the trip you will be able to visit a bison-house and a cheese farm, where you can't do without tasting local cheeses.
And of course, Lake Ladoga is a natural landscape and beauty, where you can escape from the city bustle!
