The Transfiguration of the Saviour Patriarchal Monastery on Valaam is one the most beloved Russian monasteries. In Russian Orthodoxy, Saints Sergius and German were Greek holy monks who came to the Novgorod along with the first Orthodox missionaries and founded a monastery on Valaam Island in the north of Lake Ladoga, the largest lake in Europe.
