Vyborg has located approximately 170 km from Saint Petersburg and 30 km from Finland. Before it used to be a territory of Finland, and its border shifted several times, coming from Russia to Finland and back again. A trip to Vyborg is not only a getaway from a big city but also a historical journey: Vyborg remains the atmosphere of medieval Europe. The main landmark is Vyborg Castle constructed in 1293. If you ascend the tower of Olaf, you will enjoy beautiful landscapes from its windows. In 2 km away from the castle you will find a famous Mon Repos park designed especially for calm and peaceful walks. Overall, a day trip to Vyborg is a great way to make your Russian experience different.
