Explore Viborg Castle and the pearl of Russia's natural resorts


Go several centuries back to the ancient time when Swedish people were ruling the land. You will find out about the relationships between Russia, Sweden and Finland because all these three beautiful and very different countries came together to settle down in Viborg, the most ancient and multinational place in the North West.

First of all we will take a high speed train to Viborg (Viipuri in Finnish) and there the journey begins. Please be aware that we are going to walk quite a distance during this tour because we will walk the historical center and the Viborg's castle with its museum (optional).

Then, after having lunch and resting in the restaurant we are going by bus or taxi to the pearl of Russia's natural resorts, the "rock" Monrepos Park. There we will walk in the forests, see the beautiful Northern landscapes, the ancient ruins of attractions and a famous Kalevala statue, Väinämöinen playing the kantele.

After the park visit we can end up with a souvenir shop and a cafe if you'd like.
