And a collection of Christmas tree decorations is still full of bubbling spark of the holidays. There is a special program for travellers. It includes an excursion, tea-drinking session with Karelian baking, and live performance of folk songs in Russian, Karelian, and Finnish languages, Karelian games and dances. img3
