  • 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.

  • 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.
