DESCRIPTION
The Pechenga Monastery was for many centuries the northernmost monastery in the world. It was founded in 1533 at the influx of the Pechenga River into the Barents Sea, 135 km west of Murmansk on the Kola Peninsula. The monastery is built entirely of wood, according to old Russian traditions. It was repeatedly ruined and burnt but the place feels so special that no wonder that the monks kept rebuilding it.
