What you can expect

During the city tour you will get acquainted with the history of Petrozavodsk from the foundation by Peter the Great to the 21st century and visit the museum “House of the doll”.

Petrozavodsk was founded in 1703 as Petrovskaya Sloboda by Peter the Great, who needed a new iron foundry for the Baltic Fleet at the time of the Great Northern War. By 1717, Petrovskaya Sloboda had grown into the largest settlement in Karelia. The Republic is located in the north-western part of the Russian Federation, between the basins of White and Baltic seas. There are 60000 lakes in Karelia (the largest and the most famous are Ladoga lake and Lake Onega). Karelian language is quite close to Finnish (as it was the part of nowadays Finland earlier).

You will see the monument to Peter the Great, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, newly built modern embankment, etc. After the tour, you will be transferred to the museum “House of the doll” and have a tour around it.
