    May the glory of valamo monastery created inflated expectations, but nothing in the central part of the Manor of imagination not striking. In the architectural sense temples are quite ordinary, with "vymuchennym" construction project. Decorates them only blue coverage of some domes, which looks great on a background of pure heaven. The Interior is quite modest, some novopisannye icons quite out of the common Interior. However, it is worth saying about the nature of Balaam: she is very beautiful, a combination of rocks, waters and forests generates inexpressible feelings, and if you're not a religious person, then perhaps it is the nature will bring you the most positive emotions from visiting Balaam. Also recommend to try the products, especially dairy, including ice cream.

    Impression left from what here is massively bring crowds of tourists who first pushed to take the rocket in Sortavala and take a delicious place in front of the salon, and then on the island guides queues are created. The guide told me very quietly, nothing was clear. Nothing is remembered. Glad I went to Balaam, but joy incredible have not experienced.
