    Very beautiful place. The monastery was founded in 1884, but it seems that it is much older. There is a Holy spring with a long staircase to it. Highly recommend to visit. (Photo and video shooting officially banned)

    Coming here should be early in the morning. After 11.00 already crowds of visitors (in the font and order early!). Of course, it is better to have individual excursion. Tried to book an excursion through the official website of the desert, but only accepts applications from 15 persons and more). As a result, I found the same us remarkable guide-history teacher and the Director of the village school. Very interesting!

    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
