Берег Финского Залива


Traveling by car in the Leningrad region, it was simply impossible to pass by the beaches of the Gulf of Finland and not stop in this amazing place. As it turned out, it is pleasant not only to swim and sunbathe in the summer season, but also to take a walk admiring the horizon.

Природный заказник «Линдуловская роща»

One of the largest natural objects in the Leningrad region can be called the Lindulivskaia Roshcha reserve. That's where we went right after the beach. The grove itself is on the list of objects protected by UNESCO. Away from the city bustle, we spent an hour here with a small walk along the paths along the massive plantations of Siberian Larch.

Irish Pubs

After a long walk in the fresh air we headed towards Priozyorsk, and on the way we decided to turn off for lunch in a restaurant complex called Davinci. There is a rather cozy and hospitable atmosphere. The menu is full of various meat dishes, most of which we tasted steak and vegetables, as well as kebabs.

Снетковское озеро


Not far from Lake Ladoga there is a relatively small Snetkovskoye. On its shores, surrounded by forest, there is a beach, but we decided not to swim, but to take a little walk along the shore along the forest paths.

Ресторан «Kexholm»


After a walk by the lake, we went to Priozersk for dinner. Our first stop here was a cozy restaurant of the hotel Kexholm. The menu was quite diverse, our choice fell on shashlik with vegetables and salads with seafood.
