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.
Kalevala town – young people enjoying a party.

During the weekend, two friends – Alexei Seredin and Saikko Simo. Some people have Russian names – some people have Finnish names.
