  • Actually, not in convent of Dmitrov. From the city it need to go min 40 by bus (No. 36), or more than an hour by bus (the same number) to the village Meadow. But the beautiful monastery, and is worth a special visit. Founded by the disciple of venerable Sergius of Methodius. The territory is large and well appointed. A small central Cathedral in the name of prelate Nikolay something similar to the Trinity Cathedral of the Lavra. There is a small Zoo at the monastery. And two prudika with swans, ducks and geese.

  • Went to a family with young children, were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, condition and well-groomed territory, silence and lack of crowds. At the monastery there is a Zoo, it's free. You can also buy on a farmstead fresh milk and meat products. Very nice, I can recommend to visit.

  • Nikolo-Peshnoshskij Orthodox monastery is located in Dmitrovsky district of Moscow Oblast, at 6 km from the town of B Salomon in the village Meadow by the river Jahrome at the confluence of the river Peshnoshki into it. This is one of the oldest monasteries in Moscow Russia. The monastery was founded in the 2nd half of the 14th century Holy St. Methodius Peshnoshskim with the blessing of their teacher-St. Sergius of Radonezh. Preserved information that Saint Sergius visited his disciple, and they together, as if saying, "iskopali" two ponds and planted Avenue of elms that survived to this day. The cloister impresses with its well-groomed, accuracy, perfection of lines of their temples. In the long history of the monastery was all: prosperity, as in Ivan Grozny, or at the end of the 18-early 19 century, when the monastery was called the second Lavra near Moscow and desolation, as in the time of troubles, or even abolition, as in the middle of the 17 and 18 in the middle ages, and during the years of Soviet power. It is striking that on the territory of the monastery still little Greens-only young recently planted trees. But this is not surprising, because until very recently, the territory of the monastery a few decades belonged to the psihonevrologiche ...

  • A very old monastery, but ancient buildings almost did not survive. The oldest is St. Nicholas Cathedral (late 15th century) reached us heavily reconstructed. During the Soviet period the monastery was wrecked and was in disrepair. Now fully restored and looks very rich, money found even to bring and put on the monastery grounds sawn boulders:). This gloss together with garden gnomikami and other objects "decorative arts" spoils the impression, on the other hand, attracts locals and especially children next to the walls of the monastery is arranged a little Zoo.

  • Near the monastery was v70e Apiary. I worked there, in CNIIJePuch. buildings. Locations exquisite! Then I thought how great it would be to restore the monastery and monastic life in this place. 45 years have passed and the dream almost came true.
