SELIGER VIEWS

Seliger is one of the most beautiful lakes in Russia. It was here that Prokudin-Gorsky came to take color photographs - first in national history. 

Seliger is famous for its picturesque spits and islands, Zhitenny monastery, Nilo-Stolobensky monastery which simply amazes the imagination: as if a piece of classic Saint Petersburg was miraculously transported 400 km away and set right in the middle of the lake. There is no industry or large cities, the water is clear and environmentally friendly. And all this beauty can be reached both from Moscow and St. Petersburg by car in just a few hours.
