  • A terrible impression, were with child, 2.01.18. Go to the Christmas tree decorated with eshuroj and Chinese figures last minute recalls more Western, Santa has been missing .... (could be paper, wooden toys). Went to the temple with candles to put, immediately ran over a woman and let's do note my 4 year old son over the loud voice, there was no service and the people too, then came man and let's learn that candles do not have to be late and dripping (Peel he got tired) yanked candles and myself come bet. ... Such disrespect to parishioners I haven't where. ... Have walked for the monastery itself, there next to a river that then built although by law it's sanitary zone. Everything that is not Russian and not pohrestjanski a mess and everything is for sale, no soul. ...

After the death of Abbot Paphnutius monastery became his disciple, St. Joseph Volotsky, who soon, due to the unwillingness of the brethren take coenobite Charter, has left in the Volokolamskoye Principality and founded a new monastery — Joseph-volokolamsk monastery.

  • The monastery is very ancient, sorry, that was closed during the Soviet era and was prone to looting. But now everything bad and, thank God, the service continues. Surprisingly, our group was allowed to climb to the monastery Bell Tower, as well as explore the monastic walls-gulbishham. Borovsk Monastery-the Pearl of Kaluga, along with land and Shamordino Optino.
