The Solevetsky Islands are to be found in the White Sea in the far north of Russia. I visited them in order to see the great monastery built there. The churches within the massive stone walls have been magnificently restored. It is now hard to believe that under the Soviets the monastery was used as the first of the notorious Gulags.
