Petrozavodsk Things to Do: 55 reviews and 79 photos


I really suggest to go and have a look at Orthodox churches, they are really a beauty.
Many of them are made in wood externally and they look really unique, and inside, in wome way simple, but with many precious ornaments all around, such as precious squares, statues, etc...

Always remember that inside churches specially you have to give an offer before taking pictures and it's always a good idea to ask before doing it.

From my experience inside those churches you can really see devoted women praying.
It's also popular to go on your knees when you arrive in front of the church, this because you are entering Jesus home, so even if you are not used to do it, it's also good thing if you do that as well.

Something else, you are not allowed to wear a hat or hoodie inside the church, respect, and in some churches women need to have their shoulders covered, so no t-shirt, or shorts.
