  • On the island the largest collection of detected Zayatsky ancient labyrinths. A total of 36 pieces on all the Islands. Includes spiral, concentric and square. Most researchers have linked mazes with the cult of the dead, as a path to the realm of the dead.

  • Less than half an hour by boat from the pier next to the monastery to this little island. In front of the dock are a lovely wooden church of the times of Peter the great and two tiny stone buildings (apparently a hotel and its cuisine). The island has a low tundra type vegetation with many flowers. The greatest element of interest are 3 large and impressive stone labyrinths, along with numerous small mounds of stones are Neolithic in origin. If they know very little, in the absence of systematic archaeological excavations, and the mystery adds charm to the place quite magical. Less magical is the fact that the island has made an integral part of the gulag archipelago, as a place of deportation of women. Apparently the held devoted to the collection of the abundant drift wood that still sees along the coast of the island
