  • Everyone, regardless of religious affiliation or belief, I recommend to visit this holy place. This living history Moscow Russia, Russian culture's origins and meanings. Is the monastery in the village of Bogolyubovo, a 20-minute drive from the city of Vladimir, on the route Moscow-Nizhny Novgorod. The place is picturesque, the monastery filled with the spirit of orthodoxy and Historicism. connected with the name of Prince Andrei Bogolyubsky and icon of the mother of God, which Bogolûbskoj him. For the Orthodox people it is a place of pilgrimage. For all-a monument to ancient history, XIIv. Here you will undertake a tour of the territory, lunch in the refectory. In the pilgrimage centre. 1 km from the monastery, walking through a railway, the famous Church of Pokrov-na-Nerli, a masterpiece of medieval Russian architecture. So the place is making a lasting impression!

  • At this time were by car, but like all much better than walking, but proved to be a problem with parking. There is no parking near the monastery, along the road from the monastery of sensitively long fence, so no cars snap, not people do not run across the road. Yet found where stand several times about swirled ultimately wrong, still stood on the opposite side of the monastery and half walked toward the nearest traffic light, to go to the other side, and then almost as much back, all for nothing, but with a small child and heat hard. In the end, we went to the convent, and her husband, once you understand the deal with parking in order to pereparkovyvat′sâ the child ran back not drag. When entering the monastery perched strict nun, lucky me, I was in a pretty long knickerbockers, and here's the girl for me was in shorts, a lecture was given to her ... I was asked to just wear a skirt in the Cathedral. The Cathedral itself to me has not made special impressions, but the remains of the Palace is really interesting. Be sure to go inside, there is a small museum, a woman teller immediately sells tickets and conducts mini tour, by the way, very informative. Really liked it. On leaving the monastery bought kvas-kvass is not bad, but terribly sweet, I honestly could not drink it, even in the heat, insanely sweet but fresh. When the full extent of the nuns, amused by the inscription at the entrance to the monastery, probably that this year preparing for the EXAM, counted 3 grammatical errors ... The inscription is serious, and errors are not checked. I too am sinning grammatical errors, but I try not to write on fences))))

  • Bogolyubovo monastery is located six kilometers from Vladimir. The monastery was built after the phenomenon of the mother of God Andrew Bogolûbskomu. The most revered icon of monastery is Bogolyubovo icon of the mother of God Icon is very strong. With its help the plague was stopped. There is a book where all the icons čudodejstviâ. The monastery is very neat and tidy. Many colors. A large vegetable garden. Greenhouses. The refectory. An icon shop. Although not everywhere on the territory are allowed to pass, but I recommend that you visit. After visiting there is some calm and ease.
