  • Very beautiful temples and the complex. Large enough and well-groomed territory. The inside is very beautiful and rich decoration. The atmosphere is very relaxed.

  • First time we went in the winter, before there were in summer and spring, everything was wonderful, only too cold, Frost, -30, we southerners were not such a ready. Winter is very beautiful and once in a lifetime you can undergo for the sake of it. Proposal for housing for pilgrims though take away, I can not select anybody, because we have remained friends, but when I got to know in advance (removal of the apartment or room) Note on holidays there raised prices up to the ceiling. and a lot of people coming, so my advice to you is to go to the usual not holidays.

  • 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.
