  • Charming quiet monastery held by Greeks. Quite seldom open. The trunk of the Holy cross might be in the chapel behind the altar.
  • Awefull place... Reeks of evil
  • Holy trinity.
  • Perfect in all aspects. Will recommend an extra toilet.
  • The monastery was built on the site where one of the roots have grown 3 wood: cedar, pine and cypress that make up the cross on which Jesus Christ was crucified later, after God`s mind.In Georgian monastery of the Holy Cross, serbian St.Sava has raised residences at his first pilgrimage in 1229 A.C.
