  • Firstly I want to podelit'mja how to reach the monastery by public transport from Larnaca. The waterfront from 6 till 20.00 every 2:00 there is a bus to Limassol. One-way 4 euros round-trip 7. About 1:00. I was going to 6.00. Next, ask the driver to stay in Limassol at a bus stop to get to the bus to Platres (Old hospital), she is perpindikuljarno promenade. It turns out all the time to go back to the sea. Bus to Platres walks in 6, 7, 9:30, 3:00 pm. Back to 15 and at 15.45 accurately. In platres road takes about an hour and a half, a ticket from the bus driver 1.5 euros. The driver you need to ask for a stop in Platres about information center, there's a taxi rank. Can negotiate with local, you can ask at the information centre call car road about 5 km, you can walk, but it is worth considering that the last bus at 15.45. Taxi costs about 15 euro one way. You can take the phone from the driver and agree that he will come behind you and drive back. (As I did). Further monastery: beauty unusual, mountains. Cool enough, relative to the coast. 5 in the monastery monks. The temple is always open, now is located in the sanctuary of the Virgin in Greek it is called Zoni. Father makes his obvenchanym couples, dons and reads the prayer to give a certain sense. You can ask to have the belt made just for worship, they are good. Candles at the altar, they give pilgrims. You can leave notes, can be given to the father. That kasaetmja services, then I realized they were not so every day. There is a Holy spring, so I recommend vzcht' with a bottle of water. The store sells many different literatures, frankincense, the mother of God icon Trooditissa also brethren itself makes very good antiseptic tincture from bruises and scratches, worth 8 euros. Next to the monastery, towards Platres, (you can walk from the monastery, a number), you will see a metal ladder up, you can climb on it, there is a cave where you saved the icon Bogovodicy, a cave Chapel, it is always open, the monks follow the order. Platres bus departs from the information centre. All successful pilgrimage.

  • הגענו לכאן בעקבות המלצות על מנזר מדהים. ובכן, זה מנזר חביב, לא יותר. הוא נקי משופץ ומטופח ויש בו את כל הסממנים של הכנסיה היוונית. יחד עם זה הוא ממש לא שווה נסיעה מיוחדת ולא מדבר אלינו, הישראלים. הנוף ...  more »
