You will visit Oreshek fortress, built in the XIV century, and you can even see the recently restored Old Prison and look into the cells. Then we plan to go to the first capital of Russia and visit the Old Ladoga Fortress. You will visit the highest waterfall in the Leningrad region as an interesting part of the trip.
Besides the cultural program, you will have a rest at the country yacht-club on the shore of the Ladoga lake, where you will have a Finnish sauna, go yachting, fishing and just have a good time.
