    The Ruskeala marble quarry (260 km west from Petrozavodsk, close to the border with Finland) is a picturesque natural monument and a mining site. It is filled with pristine groundwater of emerald color. The lenght of the canyon from north to south is 460 meters, width up to 100 meters. The height from the highest point of the side to the bottom is more than 150 meters. Water transparency reaches 18 meters. Picturesque marble quarries have long been mined for building marble cathedrals and palaces of St. Petersburg and other cities. Currently several quarries are abandoned and flooded, but other ones continue to be used for industrial production of stone.

    Martsialnye Vody, or the Waters of Mars, is the oldest spa in Russia, founded in 1719 by Peter the First. Its special treatments are very popular among local visitors which come here to enjoy the healing power of sulfur-smelling mud as well as lovely scenery. The health resort is situated about 50 km away from Petrozavodsk. The delightful natural setting and striking landscape seem to have been made for a spa. Local mineral waters are deemed to have healing powers and the springs are very good to drink. In 1946, a museum commemorating the spas importance, the story of its grand foundation as well as its development and growth over the years was opened here.
