    This was our first pilgrimage 11-12 August, agency "the suitcase", Yoshkar-Ola. I think this is a good option to travel with a guide, who will tell-show will send. And perhaps it is better to choose a firm that has experience of pilgrimages. Among the pilgrims were those who visit these sacred places is not the first time. Went to 8:00 pm pm bus is quite comfortable. Listened to a briefing on the visit, some historical facts about the places that will be attending. In my opinion, it is possible and more, as meets a large number of dates, names, names. Although the each read about Diveevo online and much is known. Way to hard, drove nearly eight hours. Therefore, it is necessary to take a blanket, warm socks, comfortable shoes, cushion (when buying tickets warn). And most importantly, don't forget the shirt, towel for bathing in holy sources. Usually visit 2-3 source, where the plunge and allow time to pray ... DIVEVO/Seraphim Shamordino in the name of the Holy Trinity monastery is an Eastern Orthodox convent of the Nizhny Novgorod Eparchy of the Russian Orthodox Church. Revered by local Orthodox Churches as the fourth (after Iberia, Athos and kievo-pecherska Lavra) Earth.

  • 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.
