    Poor monks! How could they probably already bored crowd shastajushhih tourists? Disappointment with the first steps on Earth of Balaam. Striking a large number of expensive vehicles which are Ministers with the words require that a gift or donation of a giver. It should be immediately mentioned that the local population remained on the island (several dozen), all the other people implicated in the monastery and its activities. Monasticism is primarily bezmolstvovanie, and commercial activities in full growth, dairy herd with cheese production in Italian technology, hundreds of tons of trout farm on Finnish technology with Smokehouse, greenhouse farming, the brewery, bakery and it's something the 170 poor monks. Price list on all products not little, for example, smoked trout 1000-1200 p per kg fish. Its fleet of ships. With a wide shoulder along the bottom of the Lake paved the cable-all for privacy and detachment from worldly affairs. Shorter for SOUL not touched, but nature in all its glory. Take the monk's berth "local" on the boat and it will show you a lot of undiscovered places with an interesting story and access to places of interest to you, you will not regret.
