Travelling to Karelia 100 years ago

Posted on March 5, 2017 by tim

100 years ago scientists and anthropologists from St. Petersburg travelled to Russian Karelia – a Northern region bordering Finland on the west. Here are the photos of people and nature they took while on this trip. The first one is a woman in a boat.  Some photos look like they are from some fairy tale.

Kalevala, two professional “criers” women who cry when something happens.

Another crier.

    Great Collection. I have many times been thinking about the huge forests of Karelia, what a hard life they must have had, and how much fantastic history must have been forgotten in all those lakes, marshes and forests.
