You can relax in the open countryside and on the banks of the many picturesque lakes, go fishing or take a stroll in the woods and break away from the urban hustle. Lovers of rural tourism might be interested in attending Beloozersk agricultural fairs.
There are a couple of hotels, farmsteads and a wellness center called ‘Energy’ in terms of accommodation. The wellness center is right in the middle of birch grove with White Lake being only 5 km away and Black Lake 6 km. You can find plants such as juniper, linden, rose, boxwood, lilac, chestnut, mountain ash, amongst others growing within the grounds and surroundings of the wellness center.
