Stepping Back in Time



Stepping Back in Time

Kenozersky National Park is a portal back in time, where the ways of life, traditions and beliefs are those of many decades before...

Created in December 1991, Kenozersky lies in the southwestern part of Arkhangelsk Oblast, on the border with the Republic of Karelia, where the Plesetsk and Kargopol municipal regions meet. It extends 72 kilometers north to south and 27 kilometers east to west.

Thanks to its seclusion and remoteness, the Kenozero region has long been a preserve for cultural relics. As far back as the middle of the nineteenth century, scientists began traveling here to study locals’ daily lives and traditions.
