Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Fabulous trails and alpine skiing

The morning will begin with an environmental trail in Komarovo. Then your way lies on the ski resort, where you can go skiing, cocktails and even skating. In the afternoon you will find another eco-trail in a linden grove, which was planted by Peter the Great. And, of course, the day will not do without horseback riding - children will be delighted with these cute creatures. In the evening you will walk along the historical centre of Vyborg, which has been perfectly preserved since the Middle Ages.

Saint Petersburg

Экологический маршрут

Morning's best started with outdoor walks. You will find a 3.5 km long ecological trail with decking and signs. It's a great way to get your kids used to hiking.

Комаровский берег

On the trail you will reach the shore of the Gulf of Finland and enjoy the fresh, clear winter air and pine forests. Before the revolution there were country mansions of creative intelligentsia and elite of society.

Пухтолова Гора

After a hike I advise you to stop at the Puhtolova Hill to get acquainted with winter sports. Here you can find an ice rink, mattresses, children's and adult instructors for alpine skiing, choose what you like for your family and on the road. The ski centre is open all days except Saturday and Sunday, but the schedule may change, so make sure you check in advance at [website](https://www.puhgora.spb.ru/chasy-raboty.html).

Шишкин

After such an active rest, it's time for lunch at the traditional Russian restaurant Shishkin.

Линдуловская роща

Europe's oldest larch grove of almost 1,000 hectares, which was founded by Peter the Great to grow a ship's forest for Kronstadt shipyard. Take a stroll through it and breathe in the purest air, rich in healthy essential oils.

Horse Paradise Club

Another family activity awaits you after the ride - horseback riding. Be sure to make an appointment 2-3 days prior to your visit, and a few hours before your visit, notify of your arrival by phone or through the [BK group](https://vk.com/horseparadisevbg).

Медведь

Your walk will go towards the restaurant for dinner. The restaurant offers both traditional homemade Russian and European cuisine, as well as hunting dishes from the meat of wild animals. It is better to book a table in advance by phone at [site](https://www.medved-restoran.ru/kontakty).

Площадь Старой Ратуши

The hotel's return road passes through the beautiful Old Town Hall Square.

Костел Святого Гиацинта

Your walk also goes through the Church of St. Hyacinth. Time is late - the church is already closed, so enjoy the Scandinavian architecture outside.

Усадьба Бюргера

It's late to go inside, but look at these structures. In Russia, not so many medieval urban buildings, where the life was not the princes, not the boyars, and ordinary people and this building just belonged to the middle class.

Day 2: Middle Ages and bisons

Your morning will start slowly, as yesterday was very active. Take a walk along the Vyborg embankment, enjoy the architecture of the city in the light of day. Have an early lunch here and head to explore the medieval town of Svargas. Get to know Scandinavian culture, this time with husky and bison. Believe me, they will bring you unforgettable pleasure!

Набережная Большого Ковша

Start your morning with a leisurely walk through the city in the light of day, walk along the quay of Big Ladle, which runs from Petrovsky Bridge along the Big Ladle Bay (Salakkalahti) to Rostovskaya Street.

Ладьи викингов «Драккары»

Stop by the Viking ships, take a few pictures. These rooks are copies of boats made in 1984 for the filming of Stanislav Rostotsky and Knut Andersen's film "And Trees Grow on Stones".

Vyborg Castle (Выборгский замок)

Castle's been open since 10:00 a.m. It looks much more beautiful from the outside, but if you want you can stop inside. The castle is open all days of the week except Monday.

Ресторан «Монрепа»

Have lunch in town before you go any further. A restaurant with Eastern European cuisine awaits you.

Medieval town of Svargas

The city of Svargas is a fortress of early medieval Baltic Vedas Slavs of the 8th - 12th centuries, recreated in life-size. Educational programs are regularly held in the center, which will be interesting to get acquainted with both children and adults. Svargas is open on Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays from 12:30.
