  • If you do not take the spiritual dimension (and he's the master), even just to look. Nice and tidy. Oh, and well, of course. Appeasement and calmness comes.

  • Came here with a pilgrimage tour. Very quiet and majestic place. 3:00, the US data proved very little. Not far from the monastery there are sources can be fetch water and plunge-there is the separation of the male and female part.

  • Very long three years gathered here. Of course, far away and places the deaf ... But very light feeling were rewarded. Among the poor villages and dense forests, such a wonderful place. So many people from all over! Probably because lucky if to get here, force them you learn to become better.

  • Sfântul Serafim de Sarov
  • The strongest place! Power Groove, sources, ... After visiting with a good guide once, it would be desirable to come back often! Almost always a huge number of pilgrims! Newly built a new temple!

  • Place of power and it is felt. In the Friday and weekend many pilgrims. On weekdays relatively freely. In the pilgrimage centre, you can remove the housing and to clarify all questions. Food: there is a pilgrimage at the monastery refectory-free, but it's on the air and paid close to the pilgrimage centre.
