  • It's beautiful. For foreigners. Solid commerce. Disappointed. As interesting, but to position as a holy place.

  • The visit of this monastery, the Northern Athos as the Russian monks call this place is a great experience. Arrived after a night wonderful (at this time of night) on the boat that St. Petersburg was the Neva River and enters Lake Ladoga at Shlisselburg. The monastery and the guided tour (in Russian) of the island to spend a splendid and rare day.

  • Unfortunately, due to short of parking our ship, unable to see the entire archipelago, but also that we visited valaam monastery, left an indelible impression in our hearts the holy place! With pleasure will come yet!

  • Valaam island is a unique place in the middle of lake Onega. Famous not only for its flora and marvellous coastal line, the island is the loved place for christian pilgrims as there's the monastery on it. Monks are living on the island all year around growing vegies, crops and fishing. Bikes are available for hiring which is great as there are places worth to see Some areas though is hard to get as there could be no proper road. Some camp sites on the beach are also available. Gorgeous sunsets and very friendly locals will make the visit unforgettable.
  • Northen nature, the old monastry
  • Beautiful, clean place. Seen here poured a lot of money. The territory of manicured, flowers, shrubs, trees, walkways, architectural design. Gardens planted everywhere. Wonderful place. Everything here is fine. Fed is delicious and varied. Eat in the refectory of the monks at the Cathedral and live here. Chants are fascinating. Such a nice church choir we haven't had occasion to listen to. Employees of hotels caring. Beautiful interiors, new, the scent of candles and candles everywhere. Clean sterile. Highly recommended to visit this place.
