Russia European (Northern)

Tourist Map (44KB); Russia Destinations (main page)

This is a land of contrasts, which owes a lot to one of the most beautiful cities in the world - St. Petersburg. Built by Peter the Great from scratch in 1702 on the banks of Neva River to become Russia's "window to Europe," it remained the capital of the Russian Empire until the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917. Moving further north from St. Petersburg, you can find the opulence of the Czar's palaces in and around St. Petersburg. Further north, you encounter the bleak desolation of tundra and industrial mining towns on the Kola Peninsula, which is also home to the Russian Northern Fleet. Northern European Russia is covered with dense mixed forests, with over 21,000 rivers and 100,000 lakes that gradually blend into the arctic tundra. Karelia, to the east of St. Petersburg, is a forested area with a very high density of lakes, the largest of which are Lagoda and Onega. Karelia is one of the most popular destinations for Russians and foreigners alike, provides a wonderful mix of history and nature. Read more about European Russia (Northern) here…
