Solovyovo (Russian: Соловьёво; Finnish: Taipale), formerly Taipale, is a settlement in Leningrad Oblast, Russia, situated on the shore of Lake Ladoga on the Karelian Isthmus, approximately 100 kilometers east-south-east of the post-Winter War border of Finland. River Vuoksi's southern armlet Burnaya empties in Lake Ladoga at Solovyovo.
Taipale at the Mannerheim Line, then approximately 20 kilometers from the Soviet border, became known for heavy fighting during the Winter War, and was held by the Finnish forces until the end of that war, when all of the Karelian Isthmus was ceded to the Soviet Union and had to be evacuated in haste.
