Kivach - Nature reserve



The waterfall is the second largest in Europe. The height of the waterfall is 10.7 meters. It is located on the river Suna in central part of Karelia. The waters of the Suna river compressed by basalt rocks fall downwards from a height of eight-metres into a foaming whirlpool. The waterfall is situated in the centre of the "Kivach", 60 km from Petrozavodsk. Up to 30-40 thousand tourists take the beautiful wood road leading up to the falls annually. A large part of the reservation is forested with spruce, fir and beech trees. The trees are very old on average over 120 years. You can also find spruces that are over 300 years old as well as unique Karelian beech trees. The Karelian beech trees are well known for their special patterns and are mostly used for making fine furniture and souvenirs. The reservation is home to 42 different mammals, 185 bird species, 4 different types of reptile and 5 types of amphibians.
