Sights in NatureActive Leisure
Most St. Petersburgers prefer to enjoy the beauty of nature in Karelia, on the shore of the Gulf of Finland or Lake Ladoga. But interesting places for active rest in the open air can be found not only to the north of the city. During this short trip you will see that the south of the Leningrad region is also generous with natural attractions.
I suggest we head towards Luga, a small town 2 hours drive from Peter. You'll see everything on the way: real canyons, extinct fish skeletons, sand dunes. I guarantee you'll be pleasantly surprised.
