  • Beautiful both inside and outside the monastery territory, all blossoms and smells sweet. From a place of calm and serenity blows. Nuns in strict measure, make comments about improper garment and rightly so. Why wear short shorts of which are sticking out and go to a monastery, and then resent that you made a comment and was told to cover up the bare space. You just need to include his head in time (before you leave home), then do not blame all around in his own contempt for the place and the people. The excursion was very interesting and informative. From all the blows of history of orthodox Russia. Personally, I don't have enough time in this place were with a group and we are constantly adjusted, that would meet the timetable. At the entrance of the monastery sell pastries and kvass. Delicious pastry, kvass is not itself saw, but for many who bought, then "twisted" bellies, that way it is doubly frustrating. I think that this is not because of the quality of the drink, but because not used to House egg on Sourdough. Including advise think three times before drinking monastyrskiy kvas in the road:)

  • 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 Bogoljubskoj 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'sja 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))))
