Вуокса Спорт

In this place we get on a boat, which can be booked at [site](https://vuoksa-sport.ru/). But it's better to prepare the gear in advance. We wish you a good catch!

Памятник Маугли

The only Mowgli monument in Russia from the stories of Redyard Kipling is located in well-groomed Petrovsky Park. The sculpture looks very contrasting, so no traveler can pass by without taking a photo.

Korela Fortress (Крепость Корела)

The fortress was built by Novgorodians in the XIII century on the island of the river Uzerve to protect themselves from the Swedes. It repeatedly passed from Russians to Swedes and was rebuilt, and only the walls and casemates of the lower floor of the main tower have survived to this day. For some time, the fortress served as a prison where the family of the rioter Yemelyan Pugachev and some of the noblemen who joined the Decembrists' movement were kept. Today there is a small museum exposition in the main tower, telling about the history and culture of Ladoga lands.

Гастрономическое кафе «Точка на карте»

It's lunchtime! We will stop our choice at the cafe "Tochka na map", which is located on the picturesque Cape Mayachny just a few kilometers from the border with the Republic of Karelia. The choice of dishes is huge! Beautiful view from the terrace, nice interior. This place is what we need for a good lunch.

Пляж

We offer a little relaxation at one of the most popular places for residents and guests of the village Melnikovskoe. The beach is located on the Vuoksa bank. Take a walk along the adjacent eco-trail and breathe fresh coniferous air!

Кирха
