Valaam. The Valaam Monastery

Valaam is one of the most beautiful places in Russia. Every year about 100 thousand pilgrims come here to visit the famous Valaam Monastery.

The age of this monastery is still a matter of discussion. One tradition says that it was founded in the 10th century. According to another — in the end of the 14th century.

This place can fill every soul with peace and calm even the most raging minds. Visit Valaam if you wish to experience completely new feelings and, maybe, even prepare yourself to make some important changes in your life.
