Not far from the Finnish border the first major city along EuroVelo 10 in Russia is beautiful Vyborg. Lying between the East Slavic/Russian and Finnish worlds, the city has changed hands several times down the centuries. It is then a 130 km cycle around the Gulf of Finland to magnificent St. Petersburg. Founded by Peter the Great in 1703, it is Russia’s cultural capital with art, ballet and opera all on offer. Continuing along the gulf, you reach Narva/Ivangorod and the border with Estonia. However, EuroVelo 10 returns to Russia further to the south when is passes through the exclave of Kaliningrad, which is much more than just a geographical curiosity.
