  • Were at the Divine Liturgy on Sunday. The temple itself is small, but inside an atmosphere of prayer. Sisters in the choir sing amazing! In the morning I wanted to sleep, but creepy singing encouraged and inspired! The father, an employee at the temple, professed a very sympathetic. Will in kirzhach, necessarily again we ❤ ️

  • The monastery is situated in the city centre, but getting on its territory, forget about everything. Energy of this place is indescribable. Would love to sit on the bench, stop running thoughts and just be in silence. But it started raining hard and kapriznichajushhij the kid returned to reality. Despite this, we went to the source, which is located to the right of the entrance in the territory. The chapel was closed and I don't know whether it works at all. The view from this place is stunning. Afterwards, we visited the lower shrine, where the relics of the venerable Roman Kirzhachskogo, a disciple of Sergius of Radonezh. Before entering into a room of the temple, we bought candles in church shop and filed briefs. Candle stand from 5 rub. and increasingly, Scrapbook-4 ruble/name. Candles can take themselves, deleting the money box. The shop also sell rings, crosses, icons, etc. While entering the temple is on the head scarves and large shawls for anyone in trousers. With trepidation, we entered the Temple of the soul, and ended up in a dark room where candles burned in only one place. Around us were icons, I have no doubt that they are beautiful, but you could see two or three, not more. Candles burned beside the relics of the PDP. Novel Kirzhachskogo, and that's all. Honestly, I was confronted for the first time! In the confusion we walked with candles in the fist and did not understand what we do. It turns out that it was necessary to get on the service to be able to light a candle and put the icon. And if you came "just so", the candles must not Kindle, and just leave. It's everything to us through his teeth, with a disdainful smirk procedila woman begajushhaja back and forth with the purpose of cleaning. The trudnica felt the most important man in possession of secret knowledge, immune to us mere mortals. For 5 minutes of communication it each one of us managed to slander nastiness, and attracting the attention of other worshippers. We were just in shock! All impression was ruined.

  • A small monastery. Nicely stands on the banks of the river Big Kirzhach. We were lucky-was executed (manually) very musical chimes.
