Day 2: From a forgotten legacy to a famous fortress.


When was the last time you were alone with nature away from the bustle and crowds? I suggest we go to a place where you won't meet anyone. You will find a mysterious church that few people know about and then have a picnic surrounded by nature and silence. In the second part of the route you will arrive to Priozersk and visit the famous ancient fortress Korela.

Day 3: From the ancient fortress to the monument of the proletariat chief...


This is the last day of our journey. The first stop is Tiberias Castle and the ruins of an ancient fortress. There used to be a thriving Tiberias Principality with its strong defensive fortress, the ruins of which you will find in this place. Be sure to find the Church of St. Andrew, which was built on a small island. The memorial complex to Lenin and the place where he hid from his enemies is the second part of today's program. You will be surprised by the unusual installations of this place.
