Isle of Salvation
A very special educational place

A quiet and hidden community which is hard to notice while driving on the busy road taking from Moscow to Yaroslav: there’s not a similar spiritual, cultural, educational centre anywhere else in Russia. Founded in the early 90's of the last century by an Orthodox priest, it was supposed to become a

Etnaland
Daily life under the highest volcano in Europe
