Valaam Part 2

After lunch we toured skits, each one being a domicile of a few monks living under stricter vows than their monastic brethren. All the skits we saw are now undergoing a major restoration, so we were lucky to see them before they are declared off-limits after monks move in.

    Интересная церковка. Жалко, если монахи все прикроют. С другой стороны, эти ребята свою выгоду тоже знают - многие монастыри туристов пускают, хотя и под строгим надзором. Может, и не закроют совсем.
