Located on the northern end of Lake Onega, the tiny island of Kizhi is home to one of the largest open-air museums in the world. The museum is a spectacular cultural site comprised of over 80 monuments of wooden architecture collected from the 17th to the 19th centuries and skillfully crafted and restored to form a glimpse of the past.
The crown jewel of Kizhi is the Church of Transfiguration, otherwise known as Preobrazhenskaya. This architectural masterpiece features 5 tiers of 22 wooden domes, gables and ingenious decorations designed to prevent rain from ruining the walls. Built-in 1714 without the use of a single nail, it has withstood the elements for over 150 years.

Valaam, dubbed the ‘Russian Vatican’, is an archipelago located in the northern region of Lake Ladoga. As one of the most popular Orthodox tourist destinations, the main attraction that draws visitors to its shores is the 14th century Transfiguration Monastery on Valaam Island.

Valaam Island

In the past, the monastery had been subjected to numerous accounts of destruction and devastation from fires and invasions. However, despite that, it was revived to live again. Now, nestled in its central part are gardens, a bakery, vegetable patches and a farm, surrounded by pine trees, rolling prairies and granite cliffs with around 200 Orthodox monks living within its walls permanently.
A 417m glacial mountain peak and archaeological site in the West Karelian Hills, Mount Vottovaara is known for its bizarre, boulder-strewn landscape. Surrounding the peak is a patchwork of strange “legged” stones, oddly deformed trees and miniature lakes.

Vottovaara Mountain

A superb hiking destination in Karelia, Mount Vottovaara is considered sacred among the Sami people, who historically inhabited all of Northern Scandinavia as well as Eastern Karelia.
Fantastic rock paintings discovered here and in nearby Lake Onega (known as the Onega petroglyphs) suggest that this was an ancient pagan ritual site as far back as an estimated 6,000 years ago.
