Description and history of an island
The Kiy-island, one of the most interesting sights of the Arkhangelsk region is located in the Onega Gulf of the White Sea only 15 km far from the ancient Russian town of Onega. Though the length of the island is 1.5 km and its width doesn’t exceed 800 metres it is very difficult to describe the real beauty of this marvelous nook of land. Huge up to 25 metres high rocks, wide sandy beaches, salubrious pineries, variety of mushrooms and berries – all this is the Kiy-island.

The history of the island is closely connected with the name of a famous religious figure of the XVII century, the reformer of the Russian Orthodox Church Patriarch Nikon. According to the legend in 1638 Nikon run into heavy weather and rescued on the Kiy-island. Having become a patriarch Nikon didn’t forget about the small island where he had found the refuge.
In 1656 Nikon got permission from Tsar Aleksey Mikhailovich to build a monastery on the island of Kiy in memory of his rescue during the storm. The architectural ensemble of the Kiy Krestny Monastery including various monuments of the XVII-XIX centuries: stone, wooden, religious and civil is very interesting even nowadays.

Numerous tourists are attracted not only by the unique monuments of architecture, but also by the marvelous wild nature of the island. Hundreds of people not only northerners but those who live in Moscow, St. Petersburg and other towns of Russia come to have a rest in the holiday home «Kiysky» in summer.
