Implementation and testing of new (water) routes between Petrozavodsk – Zaonezhje
This pilot/study case will take place in Petrozavodsk - Zaonezhje on the Onega Lake in Karelia (Russia).
Onega is the second largest lake in Europe. Traditionally people live in the areas around the lake, and it was and is a source of water, food, and different activities for local people. A number of transport routes go over and through the lake connecting villages and towns. Today the area is also a unique tourist attraction because of its nature as well as the architectural monuments, the most famous of which is the UNESCO monument Kizhi Museum.
At the same time the accessibility of the area is very limited both for the locals and tourists and has a very clear seasonal character – during the spring and autumn periods, due to weather conditions and bad road infrastructure, the possibilities for coming and going are very limited as well as unsafe.
The pilot cases:
For the two Russian partners, the Petrozavodsk City Administration and the Tourist Information Center of the Republic of Karelia, the tasks include:
- Establishing a local working group including key actors.
- Collecting and analysing data presenting the citizens’ and tourists’ mobility needs.
- Developing between one and three mobility routes between Petrozavodsk – Zaonezhje, with special focus on the water routes and transport means.
- Installation of navigation marks in the area.
- Organisation of a seminar for the north-west Russia actors in the field of mobility.
- Development/adaptation and e-solution-based for tourists and local dwellers.
- Development of recommendations for the Velikaya Guba settlement and Petrozavodsk City Administration.
