Karelia - Russia’s Primeval Forests
Spring in Karelia: At long last, sun once again shines above the horizon and liberates the forest and water-rich landscapes of Russia’s North of the ice and darkness. In Karelia, light has a very special meaning. It is said that, there are two seasons here: the eight-month-long winter and the four-month-short summer. The first sunrays transform the waves of Lake Vodlozero into liquid gold. In the white nights of Midsummer, the sun never sets, causing life to pulsate even “at night”.
