Sortavala is a town in the Republic of Karelia, Russia, located at the northern tip of Lake Ladoga. Get some cultural insight at Cultural Exhibition Center of Gogolev and Ryaisyalya Church. Get in touch with nature at Ruskeala Mountain Park and Ruskeala Waterfalls. Venture out of the city with trips to Priozersk (Korela Fortress Museum, All Saints Church, & more), Lumivaara (Linnavuori Mount & Lutheran Church) and Koionsaari Island (in Kurkijoki). There's still lots to do: stroll through Valaam Archipelago, pause for some photo ops at Monument Runopevtsu, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Paaso Mountain, and see the interesting displays at Regional Museum of Northern Ladoga.

If you are flying in from Finland, the closest major airport is Pulkovo Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
