PETROZAVODSK, November 23. /TASS/. The historical village of Kinerma in Karelia, which was named as ‘Russia’s most beautiful village’ is ready to welcome up to 4,000 tourists in 2017, spokesperson of the Guest House Kinerma rural tourism center Nadezhda Kalmykova told TASS on Wednesday. In 2016, around 3,000 tourists have visited the village.
“This year around 3,000 tourists have already visited Kinerma. Next year we expect about 4,000. This past summer Kinerma was named as ‘Russia’s most beautiful village’ and a relevant road sign was installed on the highway going past the village. As a result, the tourist inflow has significantly increased,” Kalmykova said.
The first record of the Kinerma village dates back to 1563, the name of the village means ‘precious land’. There are only five residents in the village at present while six of the fifteen remaining houses, 100 to 200 years old, are considered to be architectural heritage. Each year Russian and foreign tourists visit the village.
“The guests can stay in the village, taste the Karelian cuisine, have a look at exhibitions dedicated to the history of the village, attend various master classes to learn how to create traditional ritual dolls and make the traditional ‘kalitki’ cakes,” the Karelian Culture Ministry press service told TASS.
Kinerma has been included in the Silver Ring of Russia inter-regional tourist route, the press service added.
