In order to see a different reality, it is not necessary to look for an opportunity to fly to the other end of the globe. It is enough to pack your bags and head towards perhaps one of the most amazing natural places in the Karelian region - Ruskeala Mountain Park. Once in these surroundings, you will surely forget about civilization and city life. Among numerous canyons you will feel real unity with the nature and catch zen.
Before your trip be sure to check the official website of the park, perhaps you will be lucky enough to get to the ice sculpture festival "Mystery of the Deep", which takes place in winter. And sometimes the park hosts concerts! For example, during the Ruskeala Symphony Festival the Karelian Symphony Orchestra played classics, rock and the Beatles. Moreover, one could even hear DJ sets.
