Welcome to Northern Lake Ladoga

The top attraction in Europe’s largest lake is the monastery island of Valaam. Coming from Petrozavodsk, it’s most conveniently reached via Sortavala, though there’s an alternative hydrofoil connection from the historic castle town of Priozersk (formerly Käkisalmi) in Leningradsky Oblast, as well as pricey cruises from St Petersburg
