Karelian epos «Kalevala» – National epos of the Karelian people, compiled of old national songs and tales, telling of the glorious exploits and adventures of the Heroes of the fairytale country Kaleva.

Initial epos «Kalevala» was written in runes on the Slavic-izhorsk and Karelian languages; in 1835 the epos «Kalevala» was for the first time translated into Russian by the Finnish folklore scientist and an honorary member of the St. Petersburg Academy of sciences, Elias Lenrot.

Epos «Kalevala» carefully describes traditions of the Karelian people, transfers the national spirit and the people's love for the beautiful Karelia. Therefore, to understand the national character of the Karelian people and together with them fall in love with the beautiful Karelia, one must at least once read the Karelian epos «Kalevala».
