At Saint Seraphim-Diveyevo Monastery, see the carved wooden chest with relics of Saint Seraphim and the only portrait of the saint made during his lifetime. Walk the wide, birch-lined paths to the main gate, guesthouse, and the canal. The old summer church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, houses the gilded iconostasis and a replica of the Mother of God icon, which the saint kept in his cell. Look for the display of the saint's shoes, clothing, cross, and cup. If you are lucky, you can catch the choir of nuns singing. Amenities include many souvenir shops and a few places selling food without meat or dairy.

  • 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.
