  • Really wanted to visit the monastery and to compare with what I saw in the year 1987. Of course the positive emotions from work done on the restoration of not only the monastery, but also receiving many tourists including. Thread wanting to see and there be large. For those tourists who wished to enter the territory of the monastery itself (internal) I advise you to be in a skirt (No Pants), have a shawl covering the head and shoulders. Otherwise you will have to spend a lot of time in anticipation of a "temporary" skirts and shawls.

  • A lot was the naslyshana of Valaam and dreamed to go there. But in the end what a disappointment .... Did a tour, like all interesting. And then went a few groups in the Church and the priest for us singing. Then asked for money. Many times was in different monasteries but this pretentious, performance. I have assocacii with such places other. Too bad that it happened.

  • 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.
