    We went again for a weekend adventure in the old towns. This time in Sergiyev Posad. For one to doskochit, Hotkova decided to Radonezha and Abramtsevo. In Moscow visited the Pokrovsky monastery. Beauty, well groomed and calm outside the walls of the monastery. Liked cathedrals. Pokrovskoe buried parents of St. Sergius of Radonezh. In all recalls it. And the monument to them, and a pair of storks (figurines) everywhere, are associated with them. More in This show and have nothing, so left in Abramtsevo.

    The first mention of the Pokrovsky monastery dates from 1308 (the exact date of the Foundation of the monastery is unknown). Khotkov Pokrovsky monastery is famous for the fact that here in the early 14 c. took tonsure of St. Sergius of Radonezh parents Maria and Cyril Radonezhskie. In addition, the monastery lived and elder brother Sergius of Radonezh Stefan. The intersession of the Monastery kept the Holy relics of Mary and Cyril. Power, for the period of the closure of the monastery, had been temporarily buried near the temple (in the backyard, so to speak). Currently a temporary burial is a small stone tombstone with a bowl of sand (some Orthodox believers take from this place a bit of sand with them, as it is believed that the sand has fertile virtue). Ibid., behind the temple, Bell Tower is located in specially fenced place. Beautiful tall red-brick building, which is immediately visible at the entrance to the monastery is St. Nicholas Cathedral, built in 1900-1904 Gg. Note also the holy gates, built in the middle of 18 century. Enter the monastery can be on both sides, we went just by the Holy gate. On the territory of the monastery immediately draws your attention to cleanliness, well groomed, silence, around flower beds, lawn. We visited this place in Saturday morning, people were a little, I would say that almost never had, but later started coming the whole group (apparently with excursion). At the entrance to the monastery by the Holy Gates installed an information board with the rules visit the monastery (women necessarily in skirts/dresses and head scarves on your head). Pilgrims before you visit St.Trinity Sergius Lavra, first visit exactly Pokrovsky monastery, to venerate the relics of St. Sergius of Radonezh parents.
