Estonia - December 11th, 2011

This orthorectified wide-swath ASAR image shows the Gulf of Finland (left) and Lake Ladoga (right). Visible between the two bodies of water, on the shores of the Gulf of Finland, is St. Petersburg, Russia.

The Gulf of Finland is the easternmost arm of the Baltic Sea. It extends between Finland (to the north) and Estonia (to the south) all the way to Saint Petersburg in Russia, where the river Neva drains into it. Other major cities around the gulf include Helsinki and Tallinn (visible at the left edge).

Lake Ladoga is a freshwater lake located in the Republic of Karelia and Leningrad Oblast in northwestern Russia, not far from Saint Petersburg. It is the largest lake in Europe, and the 14th largest lake by area in the world.
