Vodla (Russian: Водла, Finnish: Vodlajoki) is a river in the south-east of Republic of Karelia, Russia. The town of Pudozh is located along Vodla. The river rises in Lake Vodlozero, a large freshwater lake in the southeastern part of Karelia. After rising in Lake Vodlozero, the river flows south for 175 kilometers before turning west into Lake Onega, Europe's second largest lake. From there, the Vodla flows a further 224 kilometers before flowing into Lake Ladoga. The Vodla's water is soft and humic.[1]
