The Bells of Solovki

18 марта 2014 г.

Solovetsky Island in Russia’s White Sea is home to one of Russia’s most fabled monasteries. This sacred, centuries-old place was ravaged by Bolsheviks and turned into the country’s first labour camp in the 1920’s. Priceless religious artifacts were destroyed and church bells melted down. However, a boat carrying the monastery’s bells which left for the mainland sunk, leaving it up to modern-day divers to retrieve them.
