About how much is written about these places in verse and prose. The person who visited Karelia will always remember it. Karelia is an amazing place, with serene northern beauty and at the same time harsh.
There is greatness and mystery in this beauty, which is why I want to come back here. In many ways, the nature of Karelia is similar to the nature of neighboring Finland. These regions are close both geographically and historically. Only the Finns have learned how to give their beauties to tourists at their best, and the Russians are just starting to do it.
From that forest, the lakes of Karelia look as if they are cleaner, untouched by civilization. This attracts people who want to feel harmony with nature, to feel one with the surrounding beauty. Now Karelia is a great place for active recreation and ecological tourism. Everything is done here so that as many people as possible visit this region.

There are a lot of fish here, the lakes are clean, and following the example of neighboring Finland, they can be made excellent tourist facilities.

But of course, it is better to go to Karelia not for a few days, but for a couple of weeks or a month to feel and see at least something. Already, a lot has been done for tourists to the Republic of Karelia.
Tourist centers were organized, dwellings for guests from simple cottages to comfortable cottages were built, there are places in Karelia and large hotels in some places. Of course, in order to experience all the magic that nature of Karelia can give, it is better to go to the forests or to the lakes of Karelia.
There where everything is pristine and untouched since the descent of the glacier. There, where you can walk under the age-old pines, or ride a canoe on the turbulent rapids of the Karelian rivers. The nature of Karelia is something that should be kept carefully so that future generations can get out of the boxes of offices and square meters of their apartments to the freedom and spaciousness of the northern beauties of Karelia.
Everyone should see these places. The secret that lies in them is the secret of all life. This cannot be explained, it can only be felt. And if someday you have a question where to go and what to see, then Karelia is a place that will not leave anyone indifferent.
