Russian-Orthodox-Monastery-Valaam is one of the largest and oldest (over 1000 years) Russian Orthodox Monasteries in the country. The monastery is in a stunningly picturesque position on an island archipelago overlooking Lake Ladoga. Over the past 10 years extensive renovations and restorations have been carried out and a guesthouse has been established for visitors. The monks run programs of retreat and pilgrimage and thousands of visitors come here each year. The monastery is depicted on Russia’s 25 Ruble coin.
