Finnish Documentary: Valamo 1939 – A Monastery Island in Ladoga!

Today we are coming back to Valaam Monastery!

Our good reader David left us a comment:”There is a monastery in Finland called New Valamo near Heinävesi in Eastern central Finland. It has its roots with the one in this video that you showed. Because of the difficulties in the USSR in the 30s, some 150 monks moved to Finland and then were under the jurisdiction of the Finnish Orthodox Church. A very popular site to go to in the summer with many Finns and foreigners.

So today we found an interesting Finnish Documentary Video: Valamo 1939 – A Monastery Island in Ladoga! Hope you like this video – the same like we do!
