Tourism is a new trend of the Karelian economy

Karelia, possessing unique landscape-natural and rich recreational resources, centuries-old cultural and historical heritage, occupies a special place in the tourism market and arouses steady interest among Russians and residents of foreign countries. Today, in contrast to the modern trend of flights around the world, the fashion for domestic tourism is returning, and Karelia has great chances to become the leading tourist center of the country.

Priority Industry

Karelia is perhaps one of the most famous Russian territories in international tourism. The republic has many unique architectural, cultural and historical sites on the islands of Kizhi, Valaam and the Solovetsky Islands, which are located near the administrative border of Karelia. This is a national treasure of Russia.

Karelia is the birthplace of the Karelian-Finnish epic "Kalevala" (a literary monument of world significance), rune singers and epic storytellers. Preserved ancient Karelian, Vepsian, Pomor settlements with original architecture, built several centuries ago. They are of great interest to fans of ethnographic tourism.

Tourism in Karelia is today recognized as a priority sector of the economy, which is becoming increasingly important in the development of the entire economic potential of the republic. It should be noted that it was this region that reacted most mobilely to the reorientation of the flow of Russian tourists to domestic markets.

For the development of tourism, the republic has sufficient conditions, there is the necessary tourist infrastructure. However (and this is enshrined in the Strategy for the socio-economic development of the region for the period up to 2030), it is necessary to increase the availability of many natural and cultural-historical objects of tourist display, to form new tourist products, to develop a set of marketing measures to promote them in foreign markets.

A group of investment projects has been developed and planned for implementation in Karelia - within their framework, it is envisaged to create objects of tourist infrastructure, promote appropriate tourist routes and programs.

Kizhi, Valaam, Kivach ...

Karelia is a protected land of forests, lakes and rivers. Its most beautiful corners provide an excellent opportunity for organizing both a relaxing holiday in the bosom of nature and active types of tourism.

These are, first of all, the famous architectural ensemble of Kizhi, Valaam Spaso-Preobrazhensky monastery, Karelian petroglyphs, Sami stone labyrinths and seids (ancient structures made of stones).
