Got an early start in the morning! Inspired by yesterday's journey, already waiting for a new experience. We'll stop here for breakfast. The food is delicious. Fish dishes are beyond any competition. I liked it.
And here we are on the posh beach of Lake Ladoga. Such sand... And the views around! There's so much space. It's very beautiful. The locals say that very often there is warm water and you can swim!
To our surprise, there's a lovely cafe. We decided not to get wise, but to have lunch here. It's delicious and original.
An ancient, mossy fortress... That's where the grey old man is. Some say the Swedes founded it, others say the city was here even before they came. Not as vast as the previous fortresses, but still interesting.
It's so old... In XIV century on the place of the present settlement was the city of Tiversk. For 100 years it defended against attacks of Korela. Tiversk stood on an island, now, because of the retreat of water, the fortified settlement is on land. From the south, the city of Tiversk was defending the rampart, from the north - a stone wall. Still there are remains of masonry. Ornaments and iron objects were found on excavations. This is a rich history here.
We have dinner at a cafe near the town. Very fresh air and good menu. We have prepared and brought everything quickly and tasty.
