Carlson Rezidor continues to rule the Russian hotel market – we are pleased to announce the colorful opening of Park Inn by Radisson Petrozavodsk, a beautiful northern Russian city, close to the Finnish border.

Thanks to the rugged beauty and untouched wildness of surrounding countryside – with forests full of brown bears, reindeer and elk – Petrozavodsk is also a very popular tourist destination.

The first internationally-branded hotel in the Karelian capital, our coolest and latest launch is located in the heart of the city at 1 Gagarin Square, named after the famous Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin – the first man to rocket into space.

Location with a great heritage

Smart, colorful and engaging, the 180-room Park Inn by Radisson Petrozavodsk brings you closer to the city’s major attractions, including The National Theatre and The Musical Theatre of Karelia.

The main railway station is just 50 meters from the front door, while Besovets Airport, a mere 15 kilometers away, operates flights to Moscow Domodedovo. The road links are excellent and visitors can take the hydrofoil across the Onega Lake to stunning Kizhi Island (Pogost), a UNESCO World Heritage site, dating back to the 14th century.

The Russian Beauty

Petrozavodsk, 420km northeast of St Petersburg, is one of the Russia‘s loveliest cities, set on the shore of Lake Onega with numerous lush green parks and pretty squares flanking its broad, tree-lined avenues.

With two universities, the city has a large student population and its close proximity to Finland adds a cosmopolitan European atmosphere.

Known to the Finns as Petroskoi, the city was founded by Prince Menshikov at the request of Peter the Great in 1703 as an armaments plant to help his Great Northern War effort against Sweden. Its name means ‘Peter’s factory’. And both the Tsars and the Bolsheviks subsequently used the city as a place of exile for St Petersburg‘s troublemakers.
