The embankment is a nice collection of sculptures with free wifi. The locals will walk and fish. Teens gather to use the free wifi. Very pleasant to relax and walk.

A must see if you are in the city, it has a fantastic view on Onega-lake. It is about 30 min walk from the train station to the pier, where you can book a ticket to a number of boat tours..

It's the best place in Ptz. At the Embankment you can have cool rest, see interesting presents from different sister-towns. You'll breath with fresh lake air. Bite some food.
