  • Uniquely, it is recommended to visit the pilgrims and tourists, but there is something to look at. Near the monastery there are several sources with the fonts and tearoom where you can purchase local produce-very tasty and natural. The monastery itself is beautiful, it has a lot of relics Optinskih startsev. Try here to ride every year.

  • A beautiful place near from Kozelsk. All renovated. Were on a weekday-not crowded. Don't drive by.

  • Coming here should be early in the morning. After 10.00 already crowds of visitors. Of course, it is better to have individual excursion. Tried to book an excursion through the official website of the desert, but the letter did not answer, but on the phone said that Saturday could only attach us to group tours. Walk the crowd in 20 persons. As a result, I found the same us remarkable guide-history teacher and the Director of the village school. Very interesting! Buy candles, leave sorokousty (there they are 100 r/name) and other souvenirs are better in store when logging (how to enter to the right)
