  • Bought for Christmas bus tour "Holy Russia" tour operator "RUS" with a visit to Murom, Vyksa, and Diveyevo. Visiting Fresno, spent the night in Vyksa we went in Diveyevo. The village of Diveevo is located in Nizhny Novgorod oblast, Russia. Diveevo this Fourth inheritance of the Virgin, after Iberia, Athos and kievo-pecherskaya Lavra. First we pulled up to the sources. In the vicinity of the monastery contains several holy sources with bathes and Chapel. Who wants to can plunge into the holy water and gather source. Before the springs there is a small market where you can purchase everything you need, souvenirs, empty bottles, handkerchiefs and skirts and more. There is a small shop where you can buy crosses and icons. In the village there is the Holy Trinity serafimo-diveevsky monastery, which originated in the second half of the 18th century. Since 1991. in monatyre the relics of Saint Seraphim of Sarov, which was taken from St. Petersburg. One of the shrines of Diveyevo is Groove of the mother of God situated in the territory of Holy Trinity serafimo-Diveyevo convent. There is a legend who commits stroke in Groove and 150 times read the prayer, our lady will definitely hear it. The monastery has a rich and interesting history and it's surprisingly peaceful and beautiful place, even in winter. I advise you to come here and touch our ancient history.

  • In Diveyevo have been a few times, but for the first time hit in winter at Baptism. Beauty unusual! Holy Trinity serafimo-diveevsky monastery-fourth inheritance of the Virgin, the holy place and extremely beautiful. Pilgrims come and go here all over Russia. During spring and summer an amazing area-plenty of flowers, gardens, clean. But the fact that in the winter there could be such a Christmas tale-it really is a miracle! State of mind-full calm and appeasement, a feeling that you really find yourself in another reality. So if you can, visit Diveevo, and not once-just need.

  • Getting in Diveyevo, a feeling of Tales: beautiful white building, the Sun blinded her in the reflection of the Golden domes. a sacred place for pravoslovnogo ... but be prepared that you will have to go and ask the nun obedience, for example: help in the kitchen (wash dishes, peel potatoes) and you can't give up, because this is a "test" for the person in the presence of the deadly sins (pride), so the nuns do not fit Aby who, but only "fit" because the nuns far-sighted. As if for the first time, do not hurry to ask anything from the first rank of the nuns can "interfere" pray and get yourself to a comment someone may be for being rude, but the truth is, they constantly pray, even if we go down the street. Necessarily venerate the relics of Serafim of Sarov. superb service and after reading akafest, stood in line not no where, and people really, really a lot. especially to the relics. Be sure to pass the Holy Flute with the reading of the prayers of the Virgin. Home better stock up on young butylkami and sacks ("locks") to consecrated oils and crackers-free. Donations-at its discretion. Blessed souvenirs on sale. Any Orthodox must visit this place.
