  • The history of the convent on the Mount of Zilantovoj goes far back in time, it connected with Tsar Ivan the terrible. The monastery has undergone many developments. After the revolution, there was a children's colony, warehouses. Then the monastery was reborn to life. When you get here, then life stood there comes peace and unity with the monastery. Very beautiful territory, roses, various flowers, shrubs. This place is a vacation for the soul!
