  • Come the second time from St. Petersburg. This monastery and the place has its own history and meaning. Accommodation and food is difficult to assess, because come here not for this. However, you can safely put 5. Here is nice and relaxed.

  • First, about the "travel". I deliver the most optimal way (easier to get from St. Petersburg) I passed through Helsinki, Joensuu by train further in road 4:30 The price of railway tickets ordered for 40 days 22.30 euros (day to day price 41 euros) on the website vr.fi. +15 euros for site selection in class extra (2-nd floor), where free tea-coffee-water taxi from Joensuu to 100 euro (65 km). The monastery, first about the spiritual. I was immediately on holiday 2. Wonderful worship, mainly in Finnish, Russian only three proclamations. But the Finnish language is very pleasant in worship. Chorus wonderful and "Izhe cherubs" sang so that up to tears and so raspevom, that I have never heard before. The first filing of briefs free of charge. Program 10 euros, but with the note can be up to 10 names, i.e. this price not for one name and program for 10 names. Many Finns, but more like tourists. I must say that the devotional life and a tourist somehow do not interfere with each other. The service of tourists especially are not visible, only believers. Although these two seam coexist, a friend of a friend "without", and the Father Abbot and monks are very accessible for communication. Clothing: there is only a plea to the stake.

  • Great place if you need peace and silence. Good food, accomodation is nice, clean and well kept, they even have rooms for pet owners. Staff is cheerful and help in any way they can. There is a winery which sells its products, and they make also liquors and whiskey. Silence comes at 9pm, when everything closes and lights go out.
  • Good and diverse service
  • Finnish Monestary with cafe and shop.
  • So quiet and peaceful.
  • An extremely interesting place to visit, the amount of history is incredible.
