  • Visited the monastery as pilgrims, were amazed by the number of relics in the monastery, ancient icons, the Monastery founded in 1444godu PDP Pafnutiem, monastery of 572 years. The iconostasis of the Church struck a member of a complex of buildings, very beautiful vintage and rare icons. History of the Foundation of the monastery has become an echo of the Mongol-Tatar invasion: as you know, the grandfather of Saint Paphnutius was Tatar, who was baptized in the Orthodox Church with the name Martin and triggered a Godly family, from which emerged a future "lamp of the Orthodox faith. Spiritual authority of Saint Paphnutius monastery attracted many people. At different times the great princes Vasily II and Ivan III, Vasily III, Ivan IV the terrible, tsars Feodor Ivanovich, Mikhail Romanov and Alexey mihajlovich, knjazja Lykovy-Obolensky, Repnin, the Volkonskiis not once visited the monastery on a pilgrimage. In the time of troubles, the monastery was on the way Polish-Lithuanian invaders led by Lzheditriem II and was the scene of bloody events, resulting in a feat of Orthodox defenders of the monastery in centuries, dawned and the city of Borovsk received a new coat of arms. We visited the monastery as pilgrims, were amazed by the amount of particles in the monastery relics, ancient icons, the monastery was founded in 1444godu St. Paphnutius monastery the 572 years. He struck iconostasis of the church, part of the complex of buildings, a very beautiful old and rare icons.

The spiritual authority of the St. Paphnutius attracted to the abode of many people. At various times, the Grand Prince Vasily II of Ivan III of Vasily III, Ivan IV the Terrible the kings Fyodor Mikhail Romanov Alexei Mikhailovich, Prince Repnin, Lykov's-Volkonskie, not just come on a pilgrimage to the monastery. In the Time of Troubles, the monastery was in the path of the Polish-Lithuanian invaders led by Lzheditriem II and became the scene of the massacre, which resulted in the achievement of the Orthodox monastery defenders beamed through the centuries, and the town of Borovsk got a new coat of arms.
