St. Petersburg suburbs
Korela, Kexholm, Kyakisalmi, Priozersk - what unites these cities? That's right, these are all names for the same place. Who, how, when and why called the present Priozersk so, who inhabited these places, and who fought for them? You will learn about all this in detail during an eight-hour trip to the lake region in the north of the Karelian Isthmus.
Traveling in a new, comfortable tourist-class minibus will appeal to both Petersburgers and guests of the city. After all, these places are not as well mastered by tourists as the fashionable resort area on the coast of the Gulf of Finland. Here, on the Keksgolmskiy (Priozerskiy) direction, islets of pristine Finnish nature, remnants of medieval Karelian buildings, and war monuments of the 20th century have been preserved.
Route and content of the tour
The guide's story begins as soon as we hit the road. You will learn many interesting facts about the Karelian Isthmus, and of course, you will not be able to do without legends and myths that will be of interest to both children and adults.
We will visit the Museum "On the Keksholm direction", which stands on the shores of Lake Sukhodolskoye and will acquaint you with the "Winter" or Finnish war - one of the most controversial and unknown pages in the history of Russia.
Next to the museum there is a unique memorial complex: 150 meters of restored and re-equipped trenches, machine-gun nests and rifle cells, a three-roll dugout, near which there is a battery of two anti-tank guns, and active field kitchens.

We will plunge into the ancient history of these places, admire the graceful outlines of the wooden church of St.Andrew the First-Called on the tiny island of Vuoksa, and then we will examine another fortress - Korela and learn how it became one of the most famous political prisons in Russia, and who was detained here .. ...
