From the sandy beaches of the Gulf of Finland to picturesque lakes and forests, a mini–trip around the Leningrad region will allow you to relax from the hustle and bustle of the city, enjoy the unique nature and keep as many memories of your vacation in St. Petersburg and its surroundings as possible.

And if you want to learn more about the tourist locations of St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region, go to the website of the Theater Square Hotel, to the news blog. There we often post collections with interesting places and popular attractions.

Lindulovskaya grove

The first plantings on the territory of the grove were carried out at the beginning of the 18th century. Gradually, various types of coniferous and deciduous trees appeared here, which today ecoactivists and botanists are doing their best to preserve.

In 1990, the grove was included in the UNESCO list as a unique natural heritage of the Leningrad region. Therefore, when you come here, you will enjoy the forest, fresh air and beautiful landscapes.

We warn you! On the territory of the Lindulov grove, as in any other forest, it is impossible to make bonfires.

Lammin-Suo Swamp

The nature reserve "Swamp Lammin-Suo" is located in the Vyborg district of the Leningrad region, and it is better to get to it by car. However, it's definitely worth it!

On hilly terrain, sandy hills alternate with ditches, in one of which the Lammin-Suo riding swamp is located.

Guests of the reserve are invited to walk through this swamp, but waterproof clothes and boots are not needed here. A wooden path has been equipped along the entire route, along which you can safely and comfortably walk, enjoying the views.

Duderhof Heights

Scientists are still arguing about the origin of these heights. Some claim that the hilly terrain in this area was formed as a result of the movement of the glacier, while others – due to the fall of a meteorite.

Nevertheless, Duderhof Heights is an ideal place for walking. Here you can go hiking, and after intensive walking – refresh yourself in a cool lake or have a picnic by the water. Just don't forget that you can't light bonfires in nature, and you can take sandwiches and hot tea with you.

Tosnensky waterfall

Tosnensky waterfall is considered one of the largest in Europe: from 2 meters high and 30 meters wide. And its age is more than 11 thousand years.

The waterfall is located in the village of Ulyanovsk, Leningrad region, and you can get here both by car and by bus.

We have chosen only a small part of the natural attractions of the Leningrad region. There are many more beautiful plantings, lakes with healing water and hills in the vicinity of St. Petersburg.

If you plan to visit the northern capital, be sure to free up a day to explore the landscapes of the Leningrad region. And in order for your vacation to take place in a comfortable atmosphere, book a room at the Teatralnaya Ploshchad Hotel.
