  • The place is amazing. Quiet and beautiful, very well-groomed territory, planted all sorts of different plants, flowers. Seen even hummingbirds, the employee said that there and partridges is. Unusually fresh pine air. Even just walk in the territory-a wonderful holiday in silence! You can go to the temple at the entrance take the skirt and scarf, there is a church bench. Arrived on 19 bus from the old town, it goes to the bus stop to the Hadassah Ein Kerem (to the hospital), and there is a 5 min walk to the entrance to the monastery.

  • Every Russian I think should visit the monastery There is such an aura that didn't want to go try to devote more time to sit on a bench a little wander along the paths, not regret is the second power of the impression After the Church of the Holy Sepulchre church there is a shop where you can submit notes and buy candles, icons etc. Can and a little more expensive but it's still a Moscow Patriarchate (raise your) highly recommend

  • In Gornensky I visit with tourists and pilgrims is quite often, it is included in some popular excursions and tours. The place is wonderful, but in the second half of the winter and early spring, when all blooms and not hot-just fabulously beautiful. From the gate we usually go up the Hill to the Cathedral on foot. This is a very pleasant walk along the path with wonderful views of the Ein Kerem and the surrounding monasteries and churches. What I advise you to pay attention in Gornensky monastery, except, of course, the Cathedral of all saints, in the land of the Russian Saints and Church of Kazan icon of the mother of God: in the temple you certainly won't miss the miraculous image of the Kazan Mother Bozhi'j; -the right of the entrance to the temple is the main shrine of the monastery-part stone, which according to local legend, St. John the Baptist, uttered the first sermon; -the temple is located on the side of the tank with holy water (near the tank usually have empty bottles-for those who are not stocked up its); -from April to June in the monastery is the icon of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Trinity Cathedral; -Cave Temple in honor of St. John The Baptist. It is often closed, but if you ask a nun monastery or trudnicu, you may admit; -busts archimandrites, donated to the Monastery sculptor z. Tsereteli; And yet, especially if you were in the monastery of yourself, I advise you to get acquainted with its history. It is very interesting, sometimes dramatic, sometimes wonderful. As, however, the history of almost all monasteries and churches in the Holy land.
