The main sight of the island is Kizhi churchyard and wooden Transfiguration Church with 22 domes built without using nails. In winter the complex especially beautiful surrounded by white endless field of Onega Lake.
The itinerary includes visit to some remote villages along the way such as Pegrema, Lipovitsy and Yuzhny Dvor. The accommodation on this tour is on the island in 10km from Kizhi deep into Kareli where you can enjoy beautiful nature and fresh winter air. Excursion on the Kizhi Island is included in the tour.
The tour starts from Petrozavodsk - the capital of Karelia Republic. The city has a very convenient train schedule with Moscow - train leaves Moscow in the evening and arrives to Petrozavodsk in the morning. The train itself is a premium and has 1-st (SV), 2-nd and 3rd classes. We advice you to book tickets in advance as Karelia is one of the favorite destination Moscovites and it is often lack of available seats on weekends.
