  • Trooditissa monastery in Cyprus is one of the many places that recommend to visit without fuss or haste. In this monastery there is a Belt of Virgin Mary. If you (your couple) dream of having children, but you can't have this belt can wear on you and read the prayer. This confirmation are numerous photographs of children in the Church. A prerequisite is a marriage made in heaven, that is, a married couple must be venčana.
