The project "Karelia Industrial: History and Present" that is supported by the Presidential Grants Fund, began on August 1, 2021. The aim of the project is to preserve the mining and industrial heritage and historical memory of the Republic of Karelia for the development of patriotism among the residents of the region and for the territorial development.
Until November 1, we accepted applications for a grant competition for NGOs in 5 target districts of the PROZVET project. The main goal was to identify and provide financial support to the best projects of non-profit organizations aimed at developing women's entrepreneurship and unlocking the potential of tourism in the project areas.
The 'Vottovaara: Myths and Legends' Festival was held on 13 November, 2021. Its purpose was to familiarize the youth of the Republic of Karelia with the historical and cultural heritage of the Muezersky district. In order to take part in the Festival, it was necessary to develop and present to the organizers a tourist route to the 'place of power'.
Dear friends, we suggest that you watch videos about our “Myths and Legends” festival which took place on Vottovaara Mountain on 13 November.
