Invitation to Tulmozerye
On a bright Sunday of August, 3, near the ruins of the old abandoned plant it was unusually crowded. Behind a new wooden stage, situated in the former bedding plant, an electric generator was hidden; speakers were placed on the stage. Trading was opened near the parking.
And near the pointer with the territory’s map young boys and girls crowded together – "Mining Road" Youth Camp volunteers ready to conduct an excursion around the plant’s territory.
The participants of Mining Road Project celebrated yet another achievement.
The first tour
The first full-scale tour along Mining Road route, in which about fifty tourists participated, took place on August, 18 – 21. They visited the museums of Petrozavodsk, drove by bus to the most of the sites included into the route and finished their way in Koli National Park in Finland.
The participant of the pilot trip, Kirill Shekov, shared his impressions about what was seen and heard during these four days. As a counter to physical laws and chemical formulas he has suggested his formula of a successful journey.
Please find below the opinions of some participants of the first demonstrative tour along Mining Road route
