La historia de la ciudad se refiere al nombre del Zar Pedro el Grande que en 1703 decretó establecer una fábrica de armas en las orillas del lago Onego. Alrededor de la fábrica se erigió un pueblo de obreros que llevaba el nombre “Petróvskaya Slobodá”.

En 1777, durante el reino de Catalina II el pueblo obtuvo el estatus de ciudad y el nuevo nombre de Petrozavódsk (lo que quiere decir las fábricas de Pedro).

Hoy en día la ciudad alberga unos monumentos y lugares de valor histórico, museos, galerías de arte, teatros y parques.

I used Nordic Travel to take me from Helsinki to Petrozavosdsk and then onto a business meeting in Segezha. I was collected at my hotel near Vantaa airport , and driven in a very comfortable mini-bus to Petrozavodsk with a most courteous driver who assisted with border crossing into Russia. I stayed overnight at a pleasant hotel in Petrozavodsk , and was driven to Segezha the next morning. ( The hotel was also arranged by Nordic Travel ). The return journey was the same , and I can thoroughly recommend Nordic Travel .
