Monastic Cape is one of my favorite places in Kandalaksha.
This is one of the most popular and spectacular local events, organized by the Chupa Yacht Club, with the participation of yachtsmen from Karelia, Arkhangelsk, and of course the Murmansk region and Kandalaksha itself.
Location: Monastery Cape, just east of the city. The event begins July 1 at noon.
A sailing regatta, historic reconstruction, arts and crafts, and a concert took place on the Monastery Cape on July 2. Here is a video of the event:
The unfinished hotel on the Monastery Cape burned down yesterday..
That’s especially disconcerning given that about a week ago a tourist hut on top of Mount Volostnaya overlooking the city burned down too.
The event is organized by Northern Squad.
A medieval fair is part of the festival, and merchants are invited.
Location: Monastery Cape, just east from the city. This happening coincides with the sailing regatta.
Location: Monastery Cape, east end of Kandalaksha. Organized by the Chupa Yacht Club. Last year’s event attracted a major crowd said to number 2500+. Details >>
The length of “the sun above the horizon” day is down to one hour. Driven by the thirst for sunrays we went to the Monastery Cape and spent the entire “day” there.
