Especially me and my friends struck huge stones, of which built the walls and buildings of the monastery. Beautiful view on it from the sea and from the Holy Lake. Very interesting excursions to the Sekirnuju mountain, the Botanical Garden, swimming boating on inland lakes and journey to the island, where Zayatsky mazes are laid out in the ancient stones. I especially enjoyed the excursion to Cape Based, where admire games herds of belugas. Wonderful guide, unfortunately, did not record his name in great detail and knowledgeably about the lives of these whales. I liked everything!
