A wonderful outdoor museum where you can see wooden buildings from Russia"s past. A number of the churches you can go inside a have a look around. Bring a picnic and a bottle of wine and you just had a nice day out in nature. Bring bug spray. I would love to see in the winter

the Soviets did one thing right in the region - they saved old buildings by bringing them to the museum. It is a truly fantastic place to explore history, especially, if you are into architecture.

I read whatever I could find in English before I went to Solovetsky; the most comprehensive coverage is "Solovki : the story of Russia told through its most remarkable Islands by Roy R. Robson, which I recommend to the serious traveler.
We arrived from a private tour boat in the White Sea and were met by a guide; we spent about three hours touring the Monastery complex and the Gulag Museum. Although recent history is dark, we found the larger picture of the 15th century founding of the Orthodox Monastery which emerged 100 years later as one of the most influential religious centers in all of Russia to be the interesting focus. The Monastery community was also one of the wealthiest landowners in Russia at that time becoming the economic and political center of the White Sea region. The churches and museum house characteristically beautiful icons.
The complex includes several churches, fortifications, walls, towers, etc., necessary to accomplish the great work of this community over the centuries. From the 16th century onward, it was a center of Christianity, a place of pilgrimage, and a depository for manuscripts.
Here and there are small collections of souvenir shops and other tourist concessions. We had fair weather but not bright sun. The Monastery complex is in the midst of what is likely decades long renovation and repair. I didn't find this especially concerning or even distracting, but it is also hard to imagine that the work will ever be completed.

This is a pedestrian street in Arkhangelsk with a variety of historic wooden buildings.
This short street, unfortunately weed-strewn, gives one a good opportunity to see many different styles of architecture in Archangel without automobile interference. Many of the buildings are restored, Most of the buildings are restorations or replicas transplanted from other parts of the city. We did not have a chance to eat at any of the restaurants, including a Mexican restaurant (which seemed a little out of place.)

We felt we were rushed through the museum and shown only 'chosen' parts. As we passed other interesting exhibits we were unable to take the time to explore. We were on a guided tour! My main complaint was the acoustics of the building. If you were not standing next to the guide, it was extremely difficult to hear her. The building is full of history so if you visit, make sure you have ample time to explore. By the way, none of the exhibits that we saw had any explanations in English which makes a visit very difficult without a guide.

I don't know this writer's work, but from the attention he draws, I'd guess he is beloved. Russians are proud of their heritage and eager to share it with all of us. This pedestrian boulevard has many statues honoring Russia's own.

Well, just a beach on Jagry island. In a good weather many locals are swimming there. But some of them told me that this could not be good because water isn't clean enough. So please check this before swimming. There are some changing stalls along the beach. And several cafes in the vicinity.
