  • Not for the first time on the island. Bless The Lord! Let good deeds help the island become better and better. A lot of people there. Of course different. The main thing is patience, humility and respect for each other.

  • Vacationing in Sortavala. Decided to visit Valaam. As with tickets to the Meteor was naprjazhenka went to the Yacht Club. Owners of boats there for a modest fee (2000 USD per person) will be brought to the island and return back. In oobshhem, have assembled a team of five people and went to the posh boat. Plus travel that nobody where chases can be ob'ehat' the whole island, to visit several monasteries on the inland waters of Balaam. Kicking them not obojdesh' as long distances and take this much time. The captain of the boats brought from the beginning to the Nikolsky monastery, from there walk (1.5 km) have walked along the scenic road to the monastic Bay, visited the monastery, Museum of rural life. While strolling the captain moved the boat in the Bay. Long sat on the boat and on inland waters Islands drove home watch white skit, then Smolensk, monastery farm where do celebrities valamo cheeses, Vladimir Voskresensky monastery (red) monastery. The stunning nature of the island. Had a great summer weather decided to take a dip in the waters of the Vaalama. The water is clean, clear, but cool. On the way back, the captain of the US made bonus and drove on Ladoga shkeram. It's not overlooked water trip for what the 2000 rubles. Emerged from the Yacht Club at 10.00 back at 21.00. With power on the island issue. Due to the large influx of tourists one café and refectory are overcrowded. Prices of space, so it is best to take a suhpaj for the whole day. The benefit it is not necessary to drag behind, and can be left on the boat.
