Isolated Church on Tiny Island

Church of Andrew the Apostle

The Church of Andrew the Apostle is mentioned in The Guinness World Records as the world’s only church built on a tiny island, with a monolithic rock serving as the foundation. It was built in 2000 by Andrew Rotinov. Surrounded by the scenic views of Vuoksi River, the place is perfect to get closer to Nature and reflect on the events of life, while praying in a relaxed atmosphere of solitude.

Located in Leningrad oblast, near the village of Vasilevo, the church is open for services. The only way it can be reached is by boat.
