  • Despite the restoration of the monastery makes an impression. We arrived on the island on the boat from St. Petersburg. Already visible approach of the dome of the monastery, surrounded by forest. From the parking lot of the ship traveled to the monastery on a small boat to the monastery dock. Saw the rugged shores of the island shrine. In June, a beautiful spectacle lilac flowered. Hit the monastery in celebration. Was the service. In the chapel of the Choir sang the Valaam monastery. All of this complemented the impression. Walking tour to monasteries also leaves an impression.

  • An incredible place that changes everything. Visit here worth each and believers, and just plain tourists. The first thing you see, approaching the island and swimming in the Bay is a stunning beauty. It surrounds the entire island and you will fall in love with every step the Valamo landscapes. The buildings are also very beautiful and fit perfectly into the landscape. Recommend monastery tea and cakes, charming sitting on stone Bank, looking into the distance of Ladoga eat vkusnâšku and drink delicious warm tea. Five o'clock that we identified for a walk on the Valaamu-negligible here just need to stay a few days or a week, to see every nook and cranny of this magic place. It is useless to attempt to explain what thoughts come from here, this is a must try. Don't hesitate-come.
