Summary: Under the influence of anthropogenic load on the territory of the Solovetsky archipelago the study of the soil and plant cover for the presence of pollutants becomes crucial. As a part of the educational project "Integrated development of the territory with unique natural, historic and cultural heritage on the example of the Solovki " the content of heavy metals such as Pb, Zn, Cu, Ni, Co, Fe, Mn, Cr, V, Ti, Sr in the soil and vegetation in the village of Bolshoi Solovetsky was analyzed. In general, in the surface layer of the soil Pb, Zn, Fe and Ti are mainly accumulated, in the soil of some areas there is a high concentration of Mn and V. For the majority of samples the allowable contamination level was marked, but two test areas can be attributed to the extremely dangerous. In the vegetation the content of the majority of the metals in question exceeds significantly the permissible normal value that corresponds to the substantial pollution level
