  • Traveling on the Volga River, on the boat, visited with excursion of Raithu monastery. This from Kazan in about thirty kilometers. History of the monastery to tell here makes no sense. It is rooted in the distant fourth century. Tell you about our experience. Of course the beautiful nature around forest lakes. Near the Lake there is a monument to Kazan cat and all the spunk his nose (wonder why). With love and with great difficulty by the territory of the monastery. Flowers, arbours, a building for pilgrims, temples are all contained in perfect condition. And when you see the pictures of what was before, when the monks came here-I mean the entire volume of performed works. As the saying goes, "God willing." At the entrance to the monastery territory hangs a plaque listing the names of sponsors. Of course such an amount of work required is very costly. At the monastery there is a boarding school for boys. If you believe the story guide, this school is the best of its kind. Vobschem, such ideal monasteries we see. But there is something that does not affect our soul. Beautiful, sleek, beautiful restored temples. But to come here again. In the convent of Zheltovodskoi we've been several times and each time we look forward to new meetings with this place. With the Raifskim monastery everything is wrong. And another very memorable story guide that major Russian official (now deceased) wanted to get married here. And as his name is among the sponsors, he was allowed to the wedding, although we all know that monasteries not crowned.

  • I ponimmaju that are similar to places like how should be beyond criticism. But, I personally have, this place does not cause AWE and delight. Too was the "politiizirovannym" commercial. Brethren vnimatel'noaja not unrequited, even said to be arrogant. No longer have the desire to visit this place.

  • Were with the excursion. Guide told an interesting story of the monastery from its founding to the present day. Royalty interest fact about silent frogs that do not croak in the evenings and nights, that would not interfere with prayer. "Even when France delivered the control batch those via 2-3 day joined the Russian tovarkam and stopped a croak." this fact. The place is beautiful and causes in the soul of appeasement, although quite crowded it was. Another interesting fact, when already went to the bus to the monastery pulled two people in church robes at the CADILLAC ESCALADE, not bad in general lives of the Brethren Church. The Lord helps them.
