Explore the preserved island of Kizhi
Included in price

At school, everyone heard about the wooden churches of Kizhi Island, erected without a single nail. During the tour, you will have the opportunity to see them with your own eyes and learn the history of the masterpieces included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The most famous of the ensemble is the Church of the Transfiguration of the Lord, crowned with twenty-two chapters of different sizes and shapes, which run up in tiers. Today, we admire this architectural monument, only thanks to a multi-stage restoration in the 20th century: the building is supported on a metal frame installed in the 80s. Now the work is still going. Next to this church is another, smaller one with nine chapters: the Church of the Intercession of the Virgin. During the tour of the island, you will see not only the famous churches and chapels, but also one of the restored peasant houses, and will be able to fully imagine the life of the northern peoples of the past centuries.

Walking tour of the island
Included in price

A trip to the island of Valaam will be a truly unforgettable experience. The rocky island, covered with coniferous forests, with gardens where some trees are more than 150 years old, and the majestic monastery, which is called Northern Athos – is a striking unity of pristine nature and human labor. According to the legend, this island in the old days was marked by Andrew the First-Called, a disciple of Christ. While preaching the Gospel, he set up a stone cross in the mountains of Balaam, but the monastery appeared much later here. The exact date of the foundation is unknown, but it did not happen before the tenth century.

The tour will begin with a walk to the foot of Mount Tabor, where the majestic Transfiguration Cathedral stands. Tourists will have to climb up to it by an old wide staircase. The lush monastery garden is to the left of it. In such a harsh climate, it is already a miracle in itself. Travelers will also get acquainted with the marble Znamenskaya Chapel, built after a visit to the monastery of the Russian autocrat Alexander II. The highlight of the tour will be a visit to the grandiose Transfiguration Cathedral, designed for more than 3,000 people. During the tragic events of the twentieth century, it was badly damaged and only recently restored. Everything in this place attracts and excites: the shrines of the monastery, the strict monastic architecture, and the unique nature of the island.
