Karelia is the name of the geographical area at the North-West of Russia. Some people call this land along the Russian-Finnish border Scandinavia of Russia. Similar nature with large forest areas, numerous lakes, swamps, rivers and fresh summers makes this part of Russia a big destination for hikers, campers, fishermen, mushroom and berry pickers. But how good can it be for skateboarding?
Turns out that Soviet architecture makes for some great terrain for improvisation on skateboards.
