Shaded Chapel. Golden Green Series
Photograph - Photography
For Russians, as well as for all the adherents of the Orthodox Church, Valaam is first of all a cloister with a long history and great spiritual significance. For many centuries it has been the spiritual center of Orthodoxy and therefore has been known in Russia as the Northern Athos.
This is Chapel Znamensky in Valaam island near The Transfiguration of the Savior Cathedral on the main island.
