Walk along the Gulf of Finland. Explore the medieval sights of Vyborg. Look at the city from the height of St. Olaf's Tower.
Vyborg is an amazing city with a long history that was influenced by three countries: Sweden, Russia and Finland. It still has the atmosphere of the European Middle Ages, which you can't find in an ordinary Russian city. On a small territory there are more than 300 historical monuments, as well as Vyborg Fortress - a visiting card of the city. Residents of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region like to come here for weekends.
The most beautiful route from St. Petersburg to Vyborg runs along the Gulf of Finland. This area abounds with parks, beaches, viewing platforms, capes and bays. Don't miss the wonderful opportunity to admire the picturesque views and come to several such places on the way!
