Belomorsk is a Russian town, the administrative center of the Belomorsk District in the Republic of Karelia.

Belomorsk is a railway junction and an important seaport in the Soroksky Bay of the White Sea. It is the terminal point of the White Sea-Baltic Canal.

The town is situated on the west coast of the White Sea, at the mouth of River Vyg, 376 km to the north of Petrozavodsk, not far from the Solovetsky Archipelago.


Not far from the town, near the Shoiruksha Waterfall, in the lower reaches of River Vyg one can see petroglyphs (about 2000 rock paintings of people, animals, hunting scenes, etc.) that have come down to us from the 6th and 5th millennia B.C. The first of petroglyph groups, namely Besovy Sledki (i.e. Demons Footsteps) was for the first time described in 1926 by Alexander Linevsky, who later became a famous science fiction writer.
