The Valaam Archipelago is located in Karelia in the northern part of Lake Ladoga, 22 kilometers away from the mainland. The Valaam Archipelago is famous for its architectural ensemble of Spaso-Preobrazhensky orthodox monastery existing on the island since 14 century. It is one of the oldest Russian monasteries. The nature of Valaam is very special. The monks never cut the trees down. They only used for their needs those uprooted or broken by wind. Therefore, Valaam is covered with indigenous taiga having some trees that are more than 300 old. Visitors can get from Petrozavodsk to Sortavala by bus (250 km) and then to Valaam by hovercraft “Kometa”. One way trip there takes 40 minutes.
