Подводная лодка Б-440


We will go to the shore of Vytegorskoye reservoir. Here is a unique museum "Submarine B-440". - it's based on a real submarine that made its last hike in 2005. Walking through the ship's compartments, you can easily imagine the life and combat routine of sailors and submariners. Everything in the museum can be touched with your hands - try to lie down on the bunk, study the device of the latrine, look at the diving suit for deep water work. Those who wish can go up to the deckhouse or on the deck of the ship. *In summer, the museum is open every day from 9:00 a.m., autumn and spring weekends on Sunday and Monday. Ticket to all compartments of the boat without excursion costs 260 rubles.



We'll stop for lunch at the already familiar Watergate restaurant. Just do not order complicated dishes: they will be cooked for too long, and there are still several hours to go.

Зеленый Пляж

Surf Spots

We're going to take a break on the bank of the Svir River. Here, in the village of Svirstroy a couple of years ago built a modern pier for cruise ships. Near the pier you can see the monument to Russian revolutionary Sergey Mironovich Kirov. The monument commemorates the fact that Kirov came here before the construction of the hydroelectric power plant on Sviri.



For an early dinner, we'll stop by the village farmer's restaurant. It can be praised for its cute interior, which is dominated by natural wood. Arbours with benches in the open air, a pond - that's another couple of arguments for this place. The menu includes a lot of interesting dishes: dumplings and cutlets from bear meat, meatballs from moose, boar chop. Drink with compote or a morsel of cowberry collected in the surrounding forests.

Лазурное озеро


Let's go stretch our bones to the Cote d'Azur. Many residents of St. Petersburg liked this place for picnics and rest by the water.
