Valaam Monastery - Step to the Skies

Valaam Monastery - Step to the Skies
Mount Athos of the North, the worthy and great Lavra -- so was called this ancient monastic dwelling, which was founded by Saints Sergius and Herman, the Valaam Miracle Workers. More than once did the Valaam Monastery see destruction and devastation, more than once did its monks die by the edge of the sword more than once were its holy churches engulfed in flames. But every time, the monastery recovered from its wounds, rose and flourished again.
