Remarks

From Ivangorod to Peterhof the tour is the same as the proposed route for the Euroroute R1. For this part of the route and towards St. Petersburg the guidebook of Detlef Kaden "Euroroute R1 Part 2" has valuable information.

From Peterhof this tour has been compiled on the basis of maps and aerial photographs and have not yet checked by cycling. It is possible that some sections are not permitted for use by cyclists, or roads are not feasable for cyclists due to the volume of traffic, or can be used at high risk only.

For the route see also velorussia.org/forum/. On the way through Sankt Petersburg members of the forum may accompany bikers, if this is requested in the forum in advance.

A map of the Leningrad oblast is available on http://www.oblmap.ru/.

Narva is Estonia's easternmost city, with about 70,000 inhabitants.

Understand

Due to the heavy damage of the Second World War, Narva had to be almost completely rebuilt. This is why the city is dominated by Soviet architecture today. Narva's "modern" Town Hall, for example, is a prime example of typical Soviet architecture.

Over 90% of the current population are Russian-speakers, mostly either Soviet-era immigrants from parts of the former Soviet Union and their descendants.

There’s plenty to do in Narva, concerts, annual festivals and open-air shows that take place both in the inner yard of the Narva Castle and elsewhere in the town, such as in the newly-built ice skating stadium.
