Valaam Island
"Balaam" in translation from Karelian means "high land" or "mountainous land", which corresponds to reality: the soil on the island is stony, and for centuries the land has been brought here from the mainland.

This island is famous for its harsh but beautiful nature, as well as ancient culture and history. The main attractions of Valaam are the wondrous northern nature, forests, lakes, islands and the historical Transfiguration Monastery with its many hermitages scattered around the islands. When visiting holy places, do not forget to take a boat and go around the island: the views will not leave you indifferent.
The island of Valaam is not a tourist center in the conventional sense. There are no amusements familiar to the traveler, but in this holy place you can get a different, unforgettable experience: to understand the futility and meaninglessness of some seemingly important questions, to know pacification and think about things that usually have no place in our everyday fuss. Balaam gives an incentive to spiritual development, makes you rethink something in your life.
