  • This monastery is one of the most remarkable sights of the KMB. So there are always lots of tourists. But there are the pilgrims. Monastery church, consecrated in the name of the Holy great martyr and Vanquisher, very personable outside and cozy inside. This prayer cosiness create hard-working nurses and parishioners-help them, o Lord! Immediately behind a celebratory icon, a little to the right, are exhibited to the public worship of the particle of the Holy relics of St. George. In the right limit of the temple there is a big miracle-working icon of the mother of God "Vsetsaritsa" which pray for health tjazheloboljashhih, icon of Saint Theodosius of the Caucasus-the Saint patron of the Caucasian mineral waters. In the left limit-large icons Optinskih startsev, myrrh-bearing women, elder Paisius, John the Russian. Here is the miraculous icon of the mother of God, "Feodorovskaya". And many other magnificent icons of the mother of God and the Saints. The monastery was erected on the Hill, with the monastic grounds provide spectacular views of the city of Essentuki, mount Beshtau, Elbrus and surrounding area. The Saturday evening service starts at 16.00, morning service-08.00. Of course, you need to visit the worship, pray with the Sisters of the monastery of the Nativity of the Lord and health and repose of loved ones. To reach the monastery better on taxi, which must be ordered by phone. Wait 10-15 minutes take the trip also 15 minutes and will cost between 150 to 180 roubles depending on the brand of the machine.

  • Was in the monastery several times. Very beautiful place, clean, well-groomed territory. There is a viewing platform from which is visible to the city and its surroundings. The only drawback is eSay Can be reached by private transport or by taxi.
