Cream Cafe

The day begins with a cup of aromatic coffee combined with freshly baked croissants. Another nice bonus to the previous two is the view of the Round Tower.

Monuments / Landmarks

We will walk around the Clock Tower, which survived several fires and miraculously survived during the Great Patriotic War. Despite a series of trials and difficult fate, it looks wonderful now, just after restoration. Make sure you capture it!

General Entertainment

We finally go to the medieval town of Svargas, an open-air museum. We'll visit the almost real fortress of the Baltic Slavs with you. Not only will we see how the Vikings lived, but we'll also see ourselves as blacksmiths, riders and hunters. Important: the historical and cultural center "Varyazhsky Yard" is open only on Saturdays from 12:30 to 15:00. To arrive on another day, you need to book one of the excursion programs. More detailed information can be found on the official website.

Ресторан базы отдыха «Тапиола»


We'll have lunch on the shore of a forest lake. The restaurant's menu includes dishes of Russian and Scandinavian cuisine, as well as "zest" from the chef: stuffed pike, triple ear, hot smoked trout. At the end of the program, our young part of the team can actively spend time in the cottages located right on the trees, jump on trampolines and hang on ropes (in winter, ride on cuddles). Adults can go to the bath in white or black, or spend time in the SPA (prior booking is required).



We will stop at one of the beautiful lakes of the Leningrad region to make a picture in the rays of the sunset in memory of our route.
