Most tourists who go to Kem go there to get a ferry to the Solovetsky Islands. To be fair this really is the main attraction to the city and it is probably not worth spending a night in Kem en route to the islands if you don’t need to. However should you find yourself with a few hours to spare in Kem there are nevertheless some nice sights worth seeing in the city before you get on your ferry.
