  • Very quiet and beautiful place, energy spots just glorious, here you can is a clock and not only on the territory of the monastery but also outside of it. In the monastery is felt particularly in the Cathedral of grace before the relics of Saint Joseph! Recommend to visit this place not only to believers but to all the rest, I'm sure you will not regret.

  • Iosifo-Volotsky Abbey, located near Volokolamsk in, about an hour and a half drive from Moscow on a high-speed Novorizhskoye highway or Pacific, after the Volokolamsk Highway, odnopolosnomu Istra truly is example of medieval Russian architecture, untouched by time or by the Communists (blasted Tower only). The truth still cannot fully restore the frescoes in the refund (summer) Church. But it's nothing monastery has one-piece appearance with around it the Lake and Grove (where you can arrange a picnic). There is also a pretty voluminous book shop with low prices and on Sunday sell locally produced cheeses (including goat). And don't forget to visit the ancient Church of Mozhaisk, located in a village near!

  • A small monastery, with an interesting history. In winter the lower church, where you can venerate the relics of Joseph Volotsky addressed his writings. There is also a power of Maxim Grek, ally of Patriarch Nikon. Monastery fully restored, except for the Bell Tower, destroyed during the war

  • Bewitching beauty of the place. Strict and laconic architectural forms combined with massive walls give the impression of an impregnable fortress, in spite of the fact that the monastery is situated on a hill and not in the low-lying, swampy area near the scenic Terjaevskih pond.
