  • Went to the monastery with two children (3 years and 2 years) on a rented car, go there difficult serpentine Yes plus left-hand traffic is a crank, and if we add two screaming kids. But it was worth it. The territory of the monastery itself is small, there are ecclesiastical shop where you can buy icons, oils, etc. Relatively high price tag, by the way. Enjoy the tranquility, peacefulness and birdsong failed-two buses with tourists. But the State of grace is still present, the place is really amazing! The road meets several picnic sites, in our opinion-chic, we were at large with WC, water and children's playgrounds. Trash cans, tables, chairs, swings for children-abound. We took a snack and is there room. Keep in mind that the road passes under the present serpentine, our kids airsick, even with water and chocolates ... Despite all the difficulties, you will definitely not regret!

  • To reach the monastery by car you will need an experienced driver. Fortunately, we have this was. A small church and Church bench. on the territory of the monastery is not pogulâeš′. Here bring many Russian tourists. How to write sources: "the miraculous icon of our Lady of Maheras is considered to be one of the 70-minute similar icons, written by Luca-Evangelist." at the entrance to the territory offers robes. Candles in the Church are free to leave a donation. Keep in mind that in the mountains can be cool

  • An interesting place to visit. The path to the monastery goes on mountain roads, the opening gorgeous scenery. The monastery itself is very perfectly fits among steep cliffs. Monks benevolent, calmly chatting with tourists. At the entrance to the monastery stands the "gatekeeper" which closely examines the visitors and, optionally, produces long robes to cover Bare shoulders and knees.
