  • Our visit to the monastery very adorned Ivan guided tour-knowledgeable historian, good feeling era, clearly loving their job and just a very nice young man. With regard to the monastery, it captures the spirit of beauty, even when the tablecloths to the arrow. Could in the old days, choose the place for the erection of churches! And, of course, it "breathes" history.

  • The cradle of the Romanov Dynasty. Just a very beautiful place. Unique historical exhibits in museums on the territory of the monastery. Each of us chooses his motive for visiting the Ipatiev's monastery, but ... Spoils the impression from this visit the desire to get to the tourist money, in General, "over the air". When tickets to the Museum are worth some money-is the norm, but when you take the money for photography is starting to strain, so much so that even after paying the required with you 100 USD, you will be able to withdraw only outdoors. The staff of the Museum expositions zealously check you tickets on each floor, as if knowing in advance you of dishonesty. However, if you try not to pay attention to these details, you can simply enjoy the beauty of the ensemble of the monastery.
