Rest in Karelia savage. Like what?!

Many people choose to stay in hotels or camp sites that are so familiar, but what if I want to rest in peace and the silence river or lake? Immediately the question arises, where to find it? Well, Karelia awaits!

Of course, as in other beautiful tourist spots, and in Karelia there, where to spend time and not to regret about the rest. But what to do if you want to break away from various hotels, camp sites, and just stay in silence? In such a case you can retire in the village, where probably rent some small and cozy house where you can relax from the hustle and bustle and spend a great vacation.

Often in travel we are accompanied by Pets, the trip is not only joy and fun but also some disadvantages associated with their placement. It is not always in hotels, camp sites or hostels allowed to keep animals in the room, that’s frustrating. But in some homes, hotels and other establishments, provide for such a situation and equip the yards or sites of special enclosures for the animals that sometimes brings even greater joy to tourists.

Walking through the village, you can see all the beauty and colors of nature. Also strolling around the neighborhood and become acquainted with the locals, if you’re lucky, you’ll be treated to genuine country milk. And of course, you can not miss the opportunity to taste the famous Karelian pies with a funny name “the gate”.

If you choose to vacation near a river or lake, you should always take the bait, especially if it is a holiday in Karelia. Fishermen will love this place, because even when fishing from the pier, you will not remain without extraction. Perch, roach, anchovy, and even breams, this and more will give you Karelia. Well, if you come to sunbathe, the best advice to come in summer, because the rest of the time, the location of the Republic on the map.

Insects, that’s what we should never forget when going on vacation. Not to spoil the holiday, it is better not to forget about all kinds of ointments and sprays. Not to spoil the evening by the fire, the terrible itching? But the cons is visible if to recall a pleasant time, for example, such as a jump into the water. Bright and unforgettable impressions are provided.

Arriving in Karelia, it’s impossible to miss the capital, the beautiful city of Petrozavodsk. City of five seas, rich in history and attractions, so do not miss the opportunity to explore the city. Little fact: all the streets of this capital city lead to the Onego lake, with a beautiful promenade. Before leaving the village buy everything you need at the supermarket, because there to find the shops pretty hard.

To sum up. If you are a fan of typical holiday, camp sites and hotels is what you need. But if you prefer to relax in silence, close to nature and like to enjoy the scenery, stay in a village for you. Karelia is not worse than that of its neighbour Finland.

Where to relax in Karelia savage?!

Most people are very selective in the choice of places to stay, and many couples, especially who have children, it is important that this stay was quiet and peaceful to retire to enjoy nature and socializing with their most close and dear people, relax.

Of course, in Karelia there are many beautiful and wonderful places where you can have a fun with various camp sites and hotels. But again, it’s the constant partying neighbours until the early hours, the noise. Great and quiet place to eat. It is located near the small village Kindasovo, near the river Shuya. On the shore is a cozy, fenced-in cottage with its own pier. It even has kennels for large dogs. It’s going to be a good solution for those who have favorite Pets, and with whom, sometimes, difficult to leave, and he is no question about where to attach the dog to a temporary residence.

In the village you can find good-natured Anna and Baba to buy her milk. Also must try the most delicious Karelian pies “the gate”.

In may, mosquitoes were not there, the locals say that they only appear in June, so it is not necessary to dial a bunch of different ointments and sprays against mosquitoes, you can safely go fishing and in the evenings take a stroll along the shore. Throw the bait and you can fish right from the pier. Basically there caught small small fishes like anchovy. But you can catch roach if to lure her perch and even bream. You can also rent a boat for fishing or just Canoeing on the river, enjoying the beauty of nature, solitude and silence. And there is a bathhouse in the evening you can go to bathe and jump into the cold water. It’s just an incredible feeling!

Of course, you can try to sunbathe, looking for Sunny places, but, probably, in may it will not work.

Cook there by yourself. Products can be purchased in Petrozavodsk in the supermarket (from a village to a city 40 km). This is a very interesting city: beautiful waterfront, and all the streets leading to the lake Onega.

So we can safely recommend this lovely place to stay with family and this cozy house on the banks of the Shuya river. You can find it by typing in the search engine request “House in Kindasovo”.
