A new portal about Karelia for tourists launched


The new tourist portal "Legendary Karelia" has started its work for everyone who is interested in a vacation in the picturesque northern republic.

The information resource was launched on the eve of the summer season and gathered in one place information about options for tourists in Karelia.

On the website you can find a selection of thematic routes, for example, for lovers of outdoor activities or gastronomic tourism, as well as get acquainted with ready-made tours from tour operators or create your own route. Impressions and recommendations of travel bloggers will help determine the choice.

On the main page there is an interactive map with the sights of the region marked on it.

"Now the portal's selection includes at least 100 different locations, historical monuments, theaters and museums. Interesting facts, stories, a poster of event events and news of the tourism sector are collected. And, of course, the portal will continue to fill up and develop," goarctic.ru quotes the words of the director of the Tourist Information Center of the Republic of Karelia Artem Valiev.
