  • The only active Armenian monastery on the territory of Russia. Old main building, built in the year 1388. When Soviet power was abandoned and became dilapidated, now restored and State are already very good. But the work of vengeance continued. To access the open Church, a small Museum (free) shop premises of old cells. In the yard there is a café and several old equipped springs water is very tasty. Place some awesome harmony and tranquility, love to drive here. The road from the main motorway Simferopol very good asphalt, the best in old Crimea. About 4 km, there is a parking. Prepared for the arrival of Yushchenko, but he never made it here. Strictly necessary to attend, if you pass through the old Crimea.

  • On the way to the monastery there is a tree, next to the grave of the murdered monk, bind the Ribbon and make a wish. Monastery rises from the ruins and is getting better every year. A quiet and beautiful place in the forest where you want to go back again. Very ancient history of these walls. In addition to the excursions you well fed and the holy sources on the territory of the monastery will quench your thirst. Recommend to visit.

  • Dizzy from what had to see. The current Temple starts with the Crypts, built 1300 s is almost completely preserved, original Museum, full of feeling, that you are not at this time and not in this country. As always it is best to tour. On the photo thumbnail construction
