  • One of my favourite monasteries. Is distinguished by its simplicity. Located in a beautiful place near Kozelsk g. Kaluga region. Out of town along the forest path, you can easily walk to the monastery. Grace reigns inside the temples, propitiation and yard. A walk through the Woods will enrich the feelings and impressions.

  • Clean, quiet, but not impressive-ordinary modern replica. Evil aunts, to catch up in the temples and does spoil the impression.

  • Previously, this really was a Desert where people prayed and brought before God. And now it's farce, the crowds are never-ending from early in the morning until the evening. Well, at least in the shade, where benches has so many people, one can wonder about the eternal.
