Tour of the Valdai region


The beauty of Valdai Krai is like that only found in fairytales; here dense forests surround the banks of the area’s many lakes and rivers, with every season bringing about a change in the area’s colours. In the summer everything is bright and sunny, while in autumn the region is characterised by more pastels and haze.
