After breakfast we make a small visit around St. Petersburg, after which we leave for the Extreme North, in order get maximum advantage of the light during the white nights (that take place between May-July). We will later return to St. Petersburg in order to visit the capital of the former Russian Empire.
- St. XENIA of St. Petersburg, starting 10 am there is the daily service at the St. Xenia Chapel in Smolensk Cemetery;

Day 3 – Friday July 24th: SOLOVETSKY (SOLOVET)
In the morning we arrive in Kem from where we cross by boat the Solovetsky Archipelago.
Solovetsky Monastery was established around the year 1436 by three monks: Savvatiy, Zosmia and Herman. As they were looking for absolute quietness, for a hermitage in the distant north, with harsh life conditions that would favor their ascetic struggle, the three monks became also the first inhabitants of the Solovetsky Islands. Their ascetic life attracted many whom wanted to follow their example and the monastic life here in Solovetsky formed many monks, their influence spreading throughout all Russia. After the Red Revolution, Stalin transformed the Solovetsky Monastery into the first and worst extermination camp for political and religious prisoners in the USSR. Many from the Bolshevik Regime were condemned and sent here, their immense number being yet unknown (priests, intellectuals etc). To the extremely hard natural life conditions of the Circle of the North Pole (frost, isolation, 6 months a year of boreal night) the communists added inhumane life conditions, psychological torture, food depravation (the annual allowance for one prisoner was of 240 rubles/year, so 0.65 rubles per day). This gulag (extermination camp) soon became the model for the Soviet Gulag system, which spread all around the USSR. The camp functioned between 1920 -1991, and its archives have been destroyed.
The harsh spiritual struggle of the monks from Solovetsky Monastery was followed by the torment and blood sacrifice of those who were “against” the atheist state, many of them having refused to deny their faith. “… wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bounds; but the word of God is not bound” (Timothy 2 2:9). The Russian Orthodox Church survived in an atheist state, the Russian land was watered with the blood of the Christian martyrs of our times, a martyrdom which reminds us of the persecutions of early Christians in the Roman Empire (since Ancient Rome till now, only here so much blood was shed for Christ). Solovetsky Monastery reopened, and out of God’s Mercy the story of the monks from this isolated spiritual fortress from the waves of the White Sea is not yet over….
The entire historic, cultural and natural ensemble of Solovetsky Island from the White Sea (Solovetsky Transfiguration Monastery and all compounds) is in the UNESCO World Heritage List (staring 1992).

Valaam Monastery is a monastery from the 10th Century, that has been vandalized and completely destroyed by the Swedes about 80 times, and always it was rebuilt from the ground. In 1715 it was re-opened by Peter I and it became one of the most renowned monasteries in Russia (in 1913 there were 395 monks in the monastery and 562 novices). In 1917 the island of Valaam enters under Finnish occupation, a non-Christian country. In 1939 it becomes again Russian soil but under the soviet regime, which desecrated and destroyed the monastery and killed its remaining monks (some of them managed to gather all holy objects and crossed on ice the Ladoga Lake to Finland, establishing the monastery of The New Valaam, in order to escape from the same fate as Solovetsky Monastery – monastery that had become the largest concentration camp under the soviet terror). The Valaam Monastery was re-opened in 1990. It is a monastery of martyrs. St. Inagtius Briancianinov said that Valaam is a holy site, and on any of its stones the Divine Liturgy could be done.
In Valaam lived St. Herman of Alaska (who was sent as Christian missionary to Alaska, and stayed there for 30 years, baptizing almost 12.000 unbelievers). Another saint that lived on the isle was St. Antipas from Calapodesti (Bacãu, Romania). Saint Antipa left for Mount Athos when he was almost 20 years old – having been tonsured in the great schema, he reached the North of Russia to collect funds for the construction of the Romanian Skete of Saint John the Baptist on Mount Athos – “Prodromu”. After completing his task and finding here the quietness for which he longed even whilst being on Mount Athos, he asked the blessing to remain forever at Valaam. After 17 years of harsh ascetic life on the island, on January 10th 1882, hieroschemamonk Antipa felt asleep in the Lord. His incorrupt relics are kept at Valaam Monastery. Saint Antipa is the only Romanian monk that has been included amongst the Saints of Mount Athos (at only 24 years after his death) and in the same time he was also canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church.
