  • We stopped on the way to the monastery in Borovsk. Reviews of it ambiguous, so didn't know what to expect. It turned out better than expected. Yes, at the entrance of pandemonium from the cars and spontaneous trade, yes there are beggars, but not so strongly hypes. Since we originally came dressed "decently", i.e. coats to the knee, no one at the inlet didn't look askance, not forced to wear a skirt. In General, a very curious place exudes history and ancient temples. A special atmosphere is not felt. The monastery itself is small, you can see pretty quickly. On the door stated that the photo is not to cite verbatim, but kind of like "after aid monastery" but we photographed on the phone completely free and no one says a Word

  • Good quiet place. Here ieromonah Photius is the winner of the show "the voice". There are certainly more monasteries with blagostnoj atmosphere. Here's what it lacked. A beautiful market town.

  • Visited in 2016g when went to Optina pustyn. Enjoyed the atmosphere on the territory of the monastery. So calmly and peacefully. HA service were not simply entered the Church bench, and then in the temple to venerate the icons and put candles.
