  • This place definitely and points of interest. Unlike neighbouring deserts optinoj, Shamordino in the same cluster of people does not give the feeling of bustle, everything here is leisurely and kind. And of course the amazing views from the Hill on the meadows and forests .... kind of exciting. The complex is very great and built in neo-Byzantine, whether in neo-Gothic style. Inside the main temple of light and airy, breathtaking ... on the territory of the gardens and flower beds, pleasant smells, beautiful track. And the stairs on a slope (more than 200 pieces) in the Valley of the holy sources, there is an entirely different microclimate, a little stuffy, humid, as if hit in the tropics in our band ... wandering about wooden flooring from source to source. All well cared for, and arranged nicely. Go upstairs-great for feet. I didn't want to leave and come back I want to definitely

  • The incredible beauty of the complex. The subtle and mysterious combination of red brick and black domes. The place is quiet and secluded. People come to holy water sources. In terms of spirit and spirituality for me to judge difficult if disgruntled gavkajushhie women is the norm for the monastery, then all is OK. Very very dirty latrines.

  • We are in the Shamordino once/twice a year. Moscow is not the most convenient and closest in terms of road space, but if you are travelling in the Optina desert, definitely worth the drive and in the Shamordino. the last visit of a little surprised "service"-went to the grocery store to buy a book about the history of the monastery witnessed acolyte vparivaet (can't pick another word) a visitor to local wine to relieve the body of radiation, cancer healing (!), and recommended to women wishing to become pregnant. very frustrating to watch such a scene of speculation on human fears and troubles.
