Про комплекс монастырских построек писать надо либо много, либо ничего. Т.к. огромный пласт истории короткой заметкой не объять, а детальное изучение доступно каждому. Скажу об удивительной красоте эт... more »About the complex of monastery buildings to write either a lot or anything. As a huge layer of history a short annotation do not embrace, a detailed study is accessible to everyone. Tell you about the amazing beauty of these places, catch a game afternoon light on the walls of the Kremlin is unforgettable. Come out tonight and not see any even of the silhouette of the building due to fog-here just need to visit and absorb it all. Wander along its walls, listen to 3 hour sightseeing tour, marvel at how easily the Falcon flown Soviet camp as cast off this with this dirt, the complex quickly back to life.

Как прекрасно, что в нашей стране есть такие места! С такой потрясающей историей, такой энергетикой, такими людьми! Где-то написано, что Соловки либо принимают человека раз или навсегда, либо не прини... more »How wonderful that in our country there are places! With such a tremendous history, such energy, such people! Somewhere it is written that Solovki or accept a person once or forever, or do not take at all. But in any case, having been there at least once, you uvezjote Solovki in his heart. Come with at least one overnight stay, wander around the island (or bike ride, as we did), visit the Botanical Garden, on the beluzhem promontory, on neighboring islands. The monastery itself is definitely worth a visit with sightseeing. Tours we purchased on site tour desk near the monastery (not to worry, there's always a lot of people). Obzorka lasts three hours, but time passes unnoticed. You will learn the basic facts of the story, especially the monastic architecture and life. How thrilling! We came from the Belomorsk, steam is 4:00 (longer than from Kemi), tickets purchased in advance via the Internet. By the way, the ticket is valid not only in the listed date, but also the day sooner or later. So you can always stay on the day:) The way seemed quite challenging-watched the seagulls have seen belugas. Cabins have shown films shot in Karelia.
