My name is Vladik. I live in St Petersburg and I go to school № 553.
Every summer my family goes to our country house in Shaldiha. My Granny lives there. It’s her native village. It is located in Leningrad region and not far from Lake Ladoga. We always go to the lake to admire its beautiful views and have a good fishing. It’s a great lake. That’s why I want to tell you about it.
It’s so big that it looks like a real sea. In summer when the weather is sunny and the sky is blue the water in the lake is very warm and I love to swim and dive in it. In autumn when the sky is grey he lake is grey and gloomy too.
Once I saw a storm on the lake. It was terrible. The wind was very strong. The waves were high and frightening. I was so happy to be on the shore.
Lake Ladoga is the largest freshwater lake in Leningrad region and even in Europe.
It is rich in fish. My dad likes to catch pike and perch, but I love to catch roach and zander. Experienced fishers prefer to catch smelt as it is a special fish, and lives only in our region.
Some important towns are located on its shores: the cities of Priozersk, New Ladoga, Shlisselburg.
35 rivers flow into Lake Ladoga: Svir, Volkhov, Vuoksa are the biggest. Only the Neva River flows from it and falls into the Gulf of Finland. May be because of that the lake’s ancient name was Nevo. The famous medieval Trade Route from the Varangians to the Greeks went along the Neva River and across Lake Ladoga.
During the Great Patriotic War equipment, ammunition and food were brought to the besieged Leningrad over the ice of Lake Ladoga. Thousands of people were evacuated and survived. This route across the Lake was called the “Road of Life”.
Now it’s beautiful and peaceful. You can see the white sails, big cargo and passenger ships and many other beautiful things.
It’s winter now but I often go to the lake because my father and I are great fans of winter fishing. It's really exciting!
