Sailing trips on lake

by baltic_2005

Hi,

Am planning to stop off a Petrozavodsk, just about 2 days, I wondered if any tour company organises sailing trips (sail boat rather than power) on the lake? I plan to be there later this month (August)?

Also any recommendation for a economical (but reasonable) hotel / hostel would be appreciated.

Regards from London,

Re: Sailing trips on lake

by 2002Chris

In 2005 I was on a tour that stopped at Petrozavodsk. We were supposed to spend 2 nights on the lake there in a sailing ship (medieval replica of a lodya I think it was called) called the Saint Nikolai (Nicholas?) and go and visit Kizhi on her. But the governement had sent the ship off on a trip to the Baltic so we stayed in the Ship Museum, where they had lots of other replica ships and other sailing boats that came and went. We took a trip on one of these round the lake (the captian looked a bit of a pirate!)and then went to Kizhi on the hydrofoil. I know which one I preferred. This would seem the place to make enquiries. I had a look to see if there was a website but couldn't find anything perhaps you might have better luck.
I've no idea what the stay at the museum cost as it was part of a package (we had ben to the Solovietski Islands) but I can't think it would be expensive- and it was certainly an interesting place, both architecturally and in all other aspects. We even enjoyed the banya (sauna) there.

Observe, people, observe :)

by lehmus

The biggest mistake of Petroskoi is a lack of an observation tower. You can use a ferris wheel at Naberezhnaja, but come on, it is not really a Big eye, is it? :))
So, here's my tip for you- climb (or use a lift) a 16 stories high building and observe!

Visit Kizhi Island in Lake...

by Anya_D

Visit Kizhi Island in Lake Onego. It is famous for its unique masterpieces of wooden architecture including the 22-dome Church of Transfiguration (built in 1714) and the oldest wooden church in Russia- the Church of Resurrection of Lazarus which dates back to the 14th century. In 1990 the architectural ensemble of the Kizhi churchyard was registered in the World Cultural Heritage List of the UNESCO.

Petrozavodsk on Lake Onega

by Klod5

Situated on Lake Onega, one of Europe's largest lakes, shipping and industry have helped Petrozavodsk evolve into one of the biggest cities in Northwestern Russia. Like Northern Minnesota, it is rich in iron ore deposits as well as other minerals such as granite and marble. As a result, industry in Petrozavodsk is based on machine building and metal processing. The city's manufactured goods include furniture, knitted goods and canned fish.
