The Ryazan Regionstruck us with its beautiful landscapes, majestic pine-trees, delicate birches and carefully cultivated fields. The sight of large harvesting machinesworking in the fields and tractors with carts scurrying towards them was a pleasant surprise.
Northwest Karelia is located on the latitude of the Onega Bay of the White Sea near the Finnish border. The roads are terrible. The nature is magnificent. Forests, lakes and beautiful rivers.
