  • Was in Surb Khach monastery in may 2016 года. Long way to the monastery lived up to my expectations. Here is a very nice and relaxed, mentally and spiritually. Tour of us spent one of the monks of the monastery, and this story cannot be even called the excursion, rather it was the narrative-about the place, about history, about people. I didn't want to go away and leave. Recommend to visit. There are several sources of healing water.

  • We went with the excursion. A little пустовато, but nice. There are sources. Around the forest. On the street cafés and WC. In cafes and Gata something like khachapuri, coffee. In General, there is an aura of the middle ages and some in Italy. The story I heard almost no since I was little more. In General, it is a good idea, in combination with Starokrymskim cemetery. In the Green House is not taken.

  • An incredible place! For the Crimean nature is one of the few places where it's always cool. Around a lot of Greens, five sources with very clean and tasty water. There are sources very lovingly. The building itself is ascetic, but there's some harsh energy. Would definitely recommend to ask someone of the monks to conduct the tour. Yes they themselves it propose: first, tourists do not spend where not necessary, secondly, much of the history of the monastery remains the "behind the scenes" at independent inspection, namely, its story is interesting. This is a story of survival in harsh conditions and careful preservation of the sparks of faith and traditions. Inside until all extremely concisely. But if you listen to the explanation of the Guide, it turns out that around fully encrypted information! Even in the walls and floor in the building of the altar, and much more. There is an interesting icon, which is written in a rare way: lick it seems "morgaûŝim"-see the eyes open, then closed. We initially thought that the temple has not been renovated, but the monk who led us (sorry, forgot the name) looked at us such surprised eyes! "What are you! There are so many already done! "and told such! After he showed us what was restored, we were shocked! The monastery is literally lifted from the ruins, no exaggeration! And the good news is that the restoration works continue. It will be interesting to look at in a couple of years! Already well done-done tiny Trade Center souvenirs spiritual properties, the same simple, like life itself, the monastery, and equip the sly visit-Center with a museum. That's just great! Maybe someone am going to be a wimp, but still recommend a trip to this monastery to dress better, and some come in shorts Super Mini and blouse from multiple ropes (girls) or in transparent t-shirts, from which hangs a stomach (men). Look, to say the least, inappropriate, not "Save" even "skirt" and scarves, which are issued to tourists at the entrance.
