Each island has a unique character. For example, giant Hogland, as if the owner of the bay, it rises above the steel waters of the Baltic, always fascinating travelers with its primeval power.
In good weather, standing on Hogland you can see Rodsher island, the westernmost island of Russia, whose tiny brick houses and a lighthouse are similar to the scenery for a fairy tale.
To the left there are the Virgin Islands, South and North. They consist of many round stones, sharpened by the Baltic waves. Ancient people built here ritual mounds and labyrinths. Even nowadays, the islands are not empty. Especially in spring, when the Virgin Islands, like the island of Kokor, turn into a "maternity home" for migratory birds.
The echo of the war is still heard on Moshchny Island, and it is difficult to imagine that this huge, life-and-colorful forest during the Great Patriotic War was on the front line.
Traces of war are even more evident on islands Bolshoy Tyuters and Sommers.
Being witnesses of the tragedies of Soviet troops, they keep their military secrets and artifacts to this day.
Their "younger brothers" have totally different atmosphere: Maly Tyuters with its virgin nature and Maly Sommers - a tiny granite piece of a hundred square meters land.
And here is Maly Island, the pastoral image of which deceived more than one ship with its invisible sandbar.
Sands, but already in the form of beaches, are present on the island of Seskar. However, its main attraction is the first all-metal lighthouse made in England in 1858.
Another island, which is literally filled with history, is Nerva, a small stone plateau with hundreds of petroglyphs.
And, finally, Vigrund. The southernmost and most modest by nature of 14 islands and the endless subject of heated debate among scientists: what is the island, rock or something else?
