Hydrofoil from Petrozavodsk to Kizhi and back
The fastest and most comfortable way to get to Kizhi is hydrofoil from Petrozavodsk. A high-speed hydrofoil vessel will reach the historic reserve in less than an hour and a half. While it is sailing away from the wharf in the capital of Karelia, you can admire the embankment turned into a contemporary art exhibition and observe the dashing snow-white gulls accompanying the ship.
Long before you arrive at the famous island where the masterpieces of wooden architecture created by local people are preserved and restored, silvery domes of the Pokrovskaya Church (Church of Intercession) appear on the horizon. This magnificent work of old masters is the symbol of the reserve. You will see that it is a very beautiful and memorable sight.
Do you want to visit the historical sanctuary on the Karelian island? You can buy a ticket without getting distracted from your daily tasks. Look at the prices, carefully study the schedule, choose a convenient date and make an order.
