We invite you to take a trip on a comfortable bus to admire a picturesque nature of the Karelian land and to get acquainted with the history and architecture of Vyborg!
Vyborg is the only medieval town in Russia. The history of Vyborg covers seven centuries. The history of Vyborg is a history of storms and loud fights in which great tsars and kings, brave soldiers and the glorified commanders have been involved. For the long life the city was under the power of 5 different states: the Swedish kingdom, the Russian empire, Independent Finland, Soviet Union,and since 1992 it was a part of the Russian Federation. Vyborg can't be regarded as a typical Russian town as it looks rather West-European.
During the city tour you will see the romantic old center with aging buildings, small and cozy parks and cobblestone streets. Accompanied by our professional Russian-speaking guide you will have the opportunity to visit the ancient castle with a tower of St. Olaf, which was founded in 1293 by Swedes during the 3rd crusade, the Market square with a Round tower. Besides you will see the Clock tower, a monument to Peter the Great on Petrovskaya hill, Dominican & St. Peter and Paul cathedrals, the town hall.
In "the HOMESTEAD Burger" you will taste mulled wine and the famous pretzels made according to medieval recipes. Then you will enjoy lunch in the restaurant "Round tower" – the oldest in Vyborg. It was opened in the early twentieth century in the ancient tower. Here you will feel the real medieval atmosphere, try traditional dishes and become participants of the Medieval Christmas show with tasting of the famous Ale. Christmas tree, live medieval music and delicious treats will leave you unforgettable impressions! + You will receive a Christmas gift!
