  • Our ship stopped at the wharf, located a few kilometers from the central farm. We walked in and it's pretty cool, because the path is very beautiful-and nature, and encountered along the path of the Church. However, for those who wish to and from the pier to the Manor buses fairly frequently. I liked the beautiful monastery, sell delicious pastries and cheese monastery, monks demonstrate excellent singing (choir of the valaam monastery-this is a separate issue, I think this is one of the best choirs), you can buy the CD. Dislikes-blatant commercial interests of the monastery, the absolute disregard monuments established by the liberators of the Islands in the GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR (including who) that is just blatant amid a brilliant monastic state of the economy.

  • Renovated valaam monastery. Energy no monastery, a large number of tourists. Spaso-preobrazhenskiy Cathedral is very beautiful, but to reach it is necessary to pass a strict cordon of protection. Mood you spoil. Taking photos even on a mobile phone is prohibited. Try to get strict shout. If you want to quietly pray and be alone with a head in the skete.

  • 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.
