"The ridge you mentioned, I know where it is, Nikolai Nikolaevich. It is, indeed, a ridge between two lakes - Maselgskoe and Vilno. The area of Kenozero near the village of Maselga is home to a unique phenomenon – the esker ridge, which is a narrow strip of land and nothing less than Grand Continental Divide between the Arctic and the Atlantic Oceans. This ridge is a real miracle. Imagine a sunset, a ridge shaped like a railway embankment, and yourselves standing in the middle of it, with still waters of Lake Vilno on your right and the perfectly round Maselga on your left, the former having its rivers flow into the Baltic Sea and the latter into the ice-cold White Sea. Many a generation have travelled this ridge on their way up North through forests! And there's Khizhgora Mount, the highest point along the ridge. Right on top of it stands the Church of St. Alexander of Svir with a beautiful view of lakes, fields, meadows and vastness of the Northern Russian forests. I love this place very much, Nikolai Nikolaevich. I could take you there. Why don't you and Vera Nikolaevna take a break for a couple of days? Where else will you see two oceans come together? Maselga seems to be the only place."
