Hello May! Finally we are happy to announce the beginning of summer season on Kizhi Island. Only a bit more than 2 weeks are left before the opening of the summer navigation from Petrozavodsk to Kizhi Island by hydrofoil.
Hydrofoils do not run every day in May and in the beginning of June. However every year a lot of tourists come just for 1 or 2 days to Petrozavodsk to visit Kizhi without having booked a ticket. When they come to the tourist office to buy a ticket, they are so disappointed to hear that there is no hydrofoil or there are no places left.
If you plan your trip to Kizhi in May or in the beginning of June, please check the hydrofoil availability and book a ticket beforehand. Have a great trip to Karelia!
