Green camping for tourist ships close to Svirstroy settlement created during construction of the hydro-electric power station on the Svir (hereby the name). The settlement is built up with 1 and 2 storey buildings of the Stalin time. The only sightseeing of the settlement seem to be a huge monument to Kirov close to the pier. There is also a small souvenir market nearby. Tourists of river cruises are usually offered 2 types of rest:

- bathing in the Svir bay located in 5 minutes walk from the pier with a sand beach and warm water
- visit to Alexander Svirsky monastery located at the distance of several tens of km from Svirstroy. Tourists are taken there by bus. Tourists seem to be the only source of income for Lodeynoye Pole region (where Svirstroy is located) this is why the excursion to the monastery costs 400-450 rubles. The monastery was founded in 1508 by prior Alexander Svirsky.
- The monastery consists of two independent ensembles Ц St. Trinity and Transfiguration ones. The main shrine of the monastery is relics of prior Alexander Svirsky
Travel company "Valaam" offers a large selection of river and sea cruises to the most picturesque corners of Russia.
