The Svir river

The fast and cold river Svir flows out of Lake Onega and flows into Ladoga. Its length is 220 km; the width varies from 100 m to 10-12 km. The river flows along a hilly plain covered with a dense pine forest, the shores are very beautiful.

After Peter the Great connected the Svir with the Neva River by the Ladoga Canal in the 18th century, the river has been part of the Mariinsky Water System, currently the Volga–Baltic Waterway. The main tributaries of Svir proper are the Vazhinka River (right), the Oyat River and the Pasha River (left).

The largest towns located on the Svir are Lodeynoye Pole and Podorozhye. There are also urban-type settlements as Voznesenye, Nikolsky, Vazhiny, and Svirstroy. There is the Nizhnesvirsky Nature Reserve located on the numerous islands and canals at the mouth of the Svir River, where it flows into Ladoga.
