We invite you on a tour along the Karelian isthmus, a picturesque area located on the Gulf of Finland.
Our route will run through the beautiful road along the lush pine forests and coastal dunes of the Gulf. The guide will tell you about the amazing history of these places that are associated with the activities of historical figures - Emperor Peter I, the artist Repin, the poet Akhmatova and many others.
We will visit one of the oldest settlements of the Karelian isthmus - Repino and the Museum-estate "Penates". You will learn about life and creative work of the outstanding Russian painter Repin who had lived here for the last 30 years of his life. Over 100 artworks by Repin, his students and friends are on display in the museum. Museum-estate of Repin is included in the List of UNESCO world heritage.
