  • Very nice, many years visiting this place. Unfortunately no longer touches. A lot of tourists and began to fade as warmth. But be sure to visit. Take a walk, pray, but go with a pure heart. Certainly walking on the monastery grounds each for themselves will find the place where you want to stay longer, to pray, to feel appeasement.

  • Long dreamed to visit this holy place and finally made it! If we do not take a spiritual component, for which all go there, it is worth noting the beauty of the architectural ensemble, excellent condition all the buildings and landscaping. We were 1 April and there are already in full bloom of snowdrops and Crocus! And what delicious Marmalade! It is interesting to visit is the place to be all-adults and children, believers and atheists.
