Since ancient times the shores of Lake Ladoga, Europe’s largest lake, have been inhabited by people who have always treasured and worked to preserve their unique traditions and customs. These are lands full of ancient legends where, for centuries, local people have lived their daily lives among the beauty of untouched northern nature.
