  • Visited the monastery. Example of Russian fortification architecture of the 17th century. Rasppolozhen in the most beautiful location on the shore of the Svir Lake. Excellent scenery. Some of this is State Museum-reserve, partially-uspensky monastery. Restavraconnye work is underway, but a large part of the monuments remain in derelict condition. Although this cannot detract grandiosity. A good Museum. Visited the Dormition Cathedral. Stayed for more than three hours, but never had time to see everything. On a visit to plan better for the whole day.

  • Very much read about kirillo-Belozjorskom monastery. Unfortunately, having visited there, experienced some frustration. The territory of the monastery-lovely surrounding nature-beautiful. Around the monastery-forests, lakes, silence. But that light feeling that you experience when you visit such places (for example, after visiting the Alexander Svirsky Monastery). It can be seen that the monastery restore work done very much, but whether the huge not well-groomed territory yet, whether the guide we had gotten a bad ... Go back there again. While visiting the Museum, look at monastic cells of those times, climb the tower to examine the wonderful surroundings (forests, Lakes) monastery is interesting.
