The camera opens a view of Oktyabrskaya Street in the town of Sortavala. The ancient city of Sortavala stands on the shores of Lake Ladoga. Finnish architects shaped the modern look of the city. The sights of Sortavala lie on both sides of the Vakkolahti Bay. A walk around the city introduces its history and architecture. We talked about the main architectural monuments and drew up a tourist map of the city with a tour route.

The lands of the northern Ladoga area were first mentioned in the Treaty of Orekhov with Sweden in 1323. It specifically talks about the Nikolo-Serdobolsk churchyard. So at that time the lands of Sortavala were called.

There are several versions about the origin of the name Sortavala. The famous Russian philologist Yakov Groth claimed that "Sortavala" comes from the Finnish participle sorttawa ("dissecting"). The Vakkolahti bay really divides the city in two.
There is also a church version. The evil spirits expelled by the monks from Balaam allegedly set off in the direction of the future city. And the name "Sortavala" (Finnish sorta from the Russian "devil", valta - power) means "the power of the devil."

The lands of the northern Ladoga area have repeatedly passed from hand to hand. After the turmoil, the Swedes established themselves here. In 1643 they founded a city called Sordavala.

After 8 years, Sordavala County is established. The Swedish nobleman Gustav Adam Baner became its owner.
After the Great Northern War, the local lands ceded to the Russian Empire. The Russians adapt the Karelian name of Sordavala to the Russian way and call it Serdobol.
In 1783, Catherine II, by her decree, returned Serdoboli to the status of a city. After 15 years, the city begins to build up according to the "highest confirmed plan."

A fire in 1903 destroyed dilapidated wooden houses in the Old Town. The center is being built up with new stone buildings in the Northern Art Nouveau style. After 1917, Sortavala became part of Finland. The city continued to develop actively until the Winter War of 1939-40. Most of the architectural monuments belong to the first third of the twentieth century.
