Petrozavodsk Things to Do: 56 reviews and 84 photos


Something else tipical from Russia, vodka.
Well this is the right place where you can and have to try real vodka.

I'm not a lover of high alcohol beverages, but from time to time i enjoy a glass.
It consists of mostly water and ethanol purified by distillation.
originally the name wasn't vodka, but bread wine was used a therm and until the middle of 18th century, vodka remained relatively low on alcohol, not exceding the 40% of volume.
Now has usually an alcohol content of 35 to 50% of volume.

Personally i have found a pretty good brand, which is Parliament, not so expensive and not so "heavy".
If you are visiting some people in Russia, they will offer you eighter vodka or thea, those 2 beverages are really common.
