  • The village of Borisoglebsk-quiet tranquil setting with several shops and no cafes and entertainment at all, but you should not go here. In the Centre of the village is an incredible building-borisoglebsky monastery. Even without going inside immediately impress his formidable medieval fortress walls (although they were already erected in the 17th century). Inside some churches, they have not been restored, but it creates an atmosphere of ancient times. Particularly impressive tower with a clock. The gates of the monastery are so beautiful and monumental that seeing their breathtaking. The monastery is very quiet, lots of trees (one gets the impression that he is standing in the middle of a forest), an atmosphere of antiques and tranquillity. Highly recommend for those who want to relax away from the bustle of the city.

  • Cozy, emotional, spiritual place. The walls of the monastery and a large area inside them say that once it was rich and visited place. Very reminiscent of the old Russian fortress, nadvratnymi temples and towers-stores. Very sorry that the temples were closed.
