Kostomuksha Strict Nature Reserve

The Kostomuksha Nature Reserve is a Karelian part of the Russian-Finnish Friendship Nature Reserve. There are numerous lakes, Kiitehenjarvi beeing the largest among them with sinuate shores and uncountable large and small islands. Surrounded by primarily dense spruce and pine forests many hundred years of age and rare meadows that have appeared on the places of abandoned Karelian villages - it is very picturesque. The Kamennaya river, flowing from the lake is rapid in the upper reaches and, on contrary, in the lower reaches it is slowly twisting between sandy hills.
