All monasteries of the Russian Orthodox Church have  same principles for organizing monastic life. But it is also worth noting that each monastery has its own history. This is most clearly and vividly seen in ancient monasteries - Kirillo-Belozersky (Vologda region), Valaam (Valaam), Pskovo-Pechora (Pskov region), Holy Trinity-Sergius Lavra (Moscow region).

Spaso-Preobrazhensky Solovetsky Monastery

The monastery is located on the Big Solovki island in the White Sea, and the monasteries and deserts are located on other islands of the archipelago. It was precisely the geographic position that largely affected the history of the development and the fate of the monastery. The monastery was a kind of border fortress: it withstood the siege of Livonians, Swedes and Englishmen, and from the end of the 16th century it was also used as an exile place. After its closure in 1920, there was a camp and a special prison.

 
Shrine of the monastery: relics of the founders - Zosima, Savvatiy and Herman (Gate Church of the Annunciation), many relics of revered saints, relics of St Lazarus of Anzer (Holy Trinity Anzersky skit) and St Job of Anzer (Golgotha-Crucifixion skit).
 
Holidays of the monastery: the Transfiguration of the Lord - August 19, the Monks Zosima, Savvatiy and Herman - August 21, the Cathedral of the Solovetsky Saints - August 22, the Cathedral of the New Martyrs and Confessors of Solovki - August 23.
